Local Highlights

East Lothian is the sunniest and the driest area of Scotland, and the mild climate in this sheltered corner of the country makes it a popular year-round holiday destination.

The coastline is punctuated with places of interest, including castles at Tantallon and Dirleton dating back to the 13th century. The area's many other attractions include beaches, historic homes and ancient monuments, good walking and cycling routes, and the best collection of golf courses to be found anywhere.

For those who like exploring our past, the Iron Age sites at Chester's Hill Fort and Traprain Law are worth a visit, and the county's interior is dotted with delightful villages where you can stop for refreshment at the many pubs and coffee shops.

The Bass Rock, 2 km offshore, is home to one of the world's largest gannet colonies and dominates the sea view from North Berwick, whilst Aberlady Bay (the UK's first local nature reserve) hosts thousands of migrating birds each autumn.

Edinburgh is just half an hour away by train. Scotland's capital city offers many attractions, but is at it's busiest for three weeks every August during the Edinburgh International Festival, North Berwick also joins in with a Fringe by the Sea festival just minutes from our front door.

The North Berwick area

North Berwick is a thriving coastal town with a long and colourful history. The growth of the 'Royal Burgh' is closely linked to the establishment of the railway line in the late 19th century, a time when North Berwick was a fashionable destination for the well to do in society, and became known as the 'Biarritz of the north'.

These days the town is home to a population of around 7,000 and is one of six main towns in East Lothian. Local infrastructure includes a high school, sports centre and swimming pool, health centre, shops, banks, pubs, restaurants, etc. There are golf, rugby, sailing and tennis clubs, and many other tourist attractions. Excellent transport links mean Edinburgh is easily accessible by road or rail.

Local attractions include Tantallon and Dirleton Castles, the Museum of Flight, Glenkinchie Disitillery, and the Scottish Seabird Centre. Boat trips to the Bass Rock and other islands are available from the old harbour in summer months.

At the heart of Edinburgh's golf coast, North Berwick is home to the West Links, the oldest piece of golfing land outside St Andrews and one of the finest courses to be found anywhere. Muirfield, Gullane, Dunbar, and the new courses at Archerfield and Renaissance are all just a short drive away.

For those who simply want to relax and unwind, there are miles of beautiful sandy beaches, good places to walk or cycle, and friendly pubs and restaurants.

Local annual events include:

- The Loony Dook (1st Jan, 2012) - watch 100's of crazy people get cold and wet in the sea !

- North Berwick Highland Games (2th Aug, 2014)

- The Fringe by the Sea (6th-12th Aug, 2014)

- Frequent Golf, Tennis and Sailing championships

As the property is on the 1st and 2nd floors of a sea front villa, it does mean that the views are wonderful and uninterrupted, but it also means that there are quite a lot of stairs: so for those with very young children we have stair gates available. We would also like to point out that it may not be best suited to those with mobility issues. We like to welcome you with a taste of products from the local area. You will find enough of everything to get you well started on your vacation, from coffee and tea to soap and laundry products. Here are a few comments from guests that stayed at Craigard this year: May2012 'Great weekend visit. House location is first class as are the facilities in the house. Will most certainly recommend this house to our friends' The Mcleans, Ross's and Slaters July 2012 'We would have paid for the views alone!

We’ve just left after a weekend at this accommodation. We had a lovely time despite the weather! The accommodation is clean and pretty much has everythinh you need.You can’t beat waking up to that view of the sea! . Moya provided tea, coffee and a few extra treats which was a lovely touch. I would highly recommend this accommodation and we hope to return.

The family stayed in this lovely house for a long weekend to celebrate my 70th birthday. We had a wonderful time. Description provided was accurate and we found accommodation very comfortable. Moya, the owner was very helpful prior to our stay and always responded promptly to any query. I greatly appreciated the welcome pack. Location very good. Short walk to all amenities e.g. bars, restaurants etc. A lovely weekend.

Fab house in an amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

The house has everything you could need and the views are breathtaking! We used the house to get the whole family together, 4 generations, and we all loved it. Plenty of space for the kids to run around and enough room for the adults to sit back and relax! We would definitely recommend it!
