A Day Trip to North Berwick

Share Button

When there was a break in the Wintery weather last week, we decided to go on a day trip to the seaside town of North Berwick, which lies around thirty miles east of Edinburgh. Upon arrival we had a walk around North Berwick Harbour, the rocky promintory behind the harbour and the beach at West Bay.

We had lunch at one of my favourite restaurants in Scotland, the Grange in the High Street. Lunch is served between 12 and 2pm. The two course set lunch menu costs £10.95 for two course, it’s £12.95 for three courses but you have to pay for  £1.50 vegetables to accompany the main course.

North Berwick is on the East Lothian itinerary of my recommended day trips from Edinburgh by car. You can also reach North Berwick by train from Edinburgh Waverley station.
