If you love traditional pubs, wood fires and stunning natural scenery, then North Berwick is the place for you. A short 30-minute train ride from Edinburgh’s Waverley Station, this chocolate-box coastal town is the perfect break from city life, giving you an insight into the humbler lifestyle of those who live along the Forth.
North Berwick is probably best-known for its beach-view golf course – but don’t worry if this doesn’t interest you! If what you’re looking for is a day out along the sea, potter along the North Berwick high street, which is filled with independent artisan shops and tea rooms. After a brisk stroll along the beach, why not settle down next to the roaring fire in The Auld Hoose with a pint, grab some of Scotland’s infamous fish and chips at the North Berwick Fry.
North Berwick is ideal for couples or for a family day out, with return tickets from Edinburgh costing only £7.10 (adult prices). Beautiful in any season, even the dreariest of Scottish days can be cheered up by a trip to North Berwick’s winding coastal streets!
