Discover this beautiful, green area, with 60 miles of stunning coast lined with dramatic castles and beautiful islands with your Scottish Tourist Guide. Perhaps it is not surprising that such a special place produced the great conservationist John Muir. Visit his birthplace in Dunbar, or walk the clifftop path to see where he gathered his earliest inspiration. Here, too, are the remains of Dunbar Castle, with links to Mary Queen of Scots, and another, even earlier, audacious woman known as Black Agnes. Let us intrigue you with their fascinating true stories.
The Douglas family were one of the most powerful in Scotland and their mighty fortress, Tantallon Castle, certainly reflects their strength. Although partially ruinous, the Castle’s fourteenth century curtain wall still stands – protecting against attacks from the sea. From atop the Castle’s walls you can make the most of some of the finest views along East Lothian’s spectacular coast. Your guide will be able to interpret all you can see.
The town of North Berwick is one of Scotland’s most desirable places to live and on a visit with a Scottish Tourist Guide you will understand why. A perfect High Street full of high class independent shops and cafes sited on an impressive stretch of coast. Climb North Berwick Law (the hill behind the town) to fully appreciate the views, or take a boat trip around the small islands, including the Bass Rock, to see the breath-taking colonies of gannets.
If you are inspired by their wings, why not ask your guide to take you to the National Museum of Flight, where you can even board Concorde.
Right along the East Lothian coast are a string of some of the world’s best golf courses. We can help you find the perfect one for your game.
After all this, you will definitely be in need of a wee dram. We can take you to Edinburgh’s nearest distillery, Glenkinchie distillery, to see how the Water of Life is produced and to taste the final product.
