Birthplace of John Muir, the father of conservation, the area is home to a rich variety of wildlife and thousands of seabirds arriving each year to nest on its islands and coastline.
Charming towns and villages invite you to browse in art galleries, museums and gift shops. The famous Brunton Theatre attracts some of the best theatre, dance and entertainment around and, not to be forgotten, East Lothian is the ancient home of golf. You'll find some of the great links and parkland courses of the world here, including the world famous Muirfield Links.
Known as the garden of Scotland, you can savour delicious fresh local produce, as well as seafood specialities in East Lothian's delicatessens, restaurants and cafes. Look out for the farmers' market in Haddington where you can try some of the best food and drink to be found in East Lothian. And don't forget to sample Scotland's national drink at the five star Glenkinchie Distillery.
Officially the sunniest and driest area in Scotland, with more hours of sunshine than anywhere else in the country, you'll have all the time you need to make the most of a visit to Scotland's sunshine coast.
North Berwick is one of Scotland's best coastal resorts with beautiful golden beaches and a vibrant town centre offering boutiques and art galleries, complemented by delicious local produce and the finest wines and spirits.
We are the home of the award winning Scottish Seabird Centre and National Museum of Flight, and lie between the impressive ruins of both Tantallon and Dirleton Castles. Further afield we have John Muir's Birthplace, Musselburgh Racecourse, The Saltire Centre, Myreton Motor Museum, Raceland and Glenkinchie Distillery – ensuring there is an activity for everyone, come rain or shine.
To the north lies the Firth of Forth, home to a range of amazing wildlife including seabirds such as gannets, puffins, guillemots, shags and kittiwakes together with seals and dolphins – wildlife cruises sail from our local harbour. The Bass Rock has been described by Sir David Attenborough as 'one of the 12 wildlife wonders of the world.'
Our town has a long and interesting history and whether you choose to visit one of our castles or the Saltire Centre you won't be disappointed. Why don't you set off to find out more about the North Berwick witches or the historic Pilgrim's Ferry?
If you like to get active North Berwick has plenty to offer with scenic walks and great cycle routes, not to mention three golf courses which offer enjoyable, if sometimes challenging, rounds for golfers of all abilities.

"A wee Gem !"
Just back from 3 nights at Bolthole and the photos don't do it justice. It's a lovely flat, well equipped and very tastefully decorated and furnished. Had the good fortune of going at New Year so watched the 'looney Dook" and enjoyed a much needed head clearing walk along the beach. North Berwick is a great town and this is a great place to stay, given its excellent location. Already planning a week in summer !
Thanks Steve. Look forward to having you back in the summer! Lorna

"Like staying in a friend's house - a friend with very good taste!"
We have just returned from an absolutely fantastic time at Bolthole by the beach. Although the pictures of the flat make it look lovely, you cannot appreciate just how beautiful the flat is until you get there. We had not appreciated quite how close the beach was and the views are great. Every little detail has been thought of so it feels like you are staying at a (very stylish) friend's house. The kids (2 and 5) had an absolutely ball and loved all the toys and books that had been left out for them. I would not hesitate to recommend it and we will certainly be back ourselves.
Welcome back any time!

"Fabulous stay, couldn't have asked for more"
We stayed at the Bolthole for 6 weeks in between a relocation to Edinburgh. The apartment couldn't be in a better position, you can sit and watch the waves lap from the sitting room. The apartment itself, wonderfully decorated, oodles of space and well equipped. North Berwick is a great place to stay, I second The Ship pub, food outstanding and welcomes children. Lorna was so accommodating, making sure we were happy and well catered for. No hesitation in recommending The Bolthole.
Thanks Laura. I told you you'd fall in love with north berwick! Hope to see you here again soon! Lorna x
