Its a great space for entertaining; your guests sitting at the breakfast bar with a glass of wine while you get on with the cooking or why not just nip along the High Street and collect a takeaway. The adjoining utility room has freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer, and a traditional pulley for hanging up that wet golfing or sailing gear.

    Don't worry about packing your car with all those self-catering basics. We provide coffee, tea and sugar as well as a full range of cleaning materials and a complementary bottle of wine.
     

    The East Lothian coast provides a wonderful landscape with sandy bays and rocky cliffs, and the outlying islands, the Bass Rock, May Island and Craigleith, are home to many bird species including puffins, cormorants, gulls and many others. The Bass Rock is the largest island gannet colony in the world. North Berwick is home to the Scottish Seabird Centre with its battery of webcams positioned on the surrounding islands.


    Boat trips from the harbour offer tours for bird watching and spotting the marine life such as seals and dolphins. Boats for fishing trips are available for hire.

    The East of Scotland is known as the home of golf, and North Berwick offers a superb base for a golfing trip, with ready access to the West Course, Muirfield, Gullane, Dunbar and many more. There are more than twenty golf courses within easy reach in East Lothian, and many more in and around Edinburgh and also across the Forth in Fife where you might want to make a pilgrimage to St Andrews.

    There is a wide range of features of interest for the holidaymaker. There are ruined medieval castles at Tantallon with its dramatic cliff top location and at Dirleton with its superb herbaceous border. The Museum of Flight offers an opportunity to board Concorde and the Myreton Motor Museum has a wonderful collection of vintage cars, motor cycles and commercial vehicles.

    Most of Scotland's whiskies are produced in the highlands and islands but nearby Pencaitland is the home of the Glenkinchie Distillery where it is possible to take part in a visitor tour and sample the 'Edinburgh Malt'.

    Just half an hour away by train, Edinburgh offers a unique collection of attractions for the visitor. The Castle, the Royal Yacht Britannia, Holyrood Palace and the Parliament building are all "must-sees". There is also a fantastic selection of bars and restaurants, including a number with Michelin stars, to savour and enjoy. The world famous International Festival and Fringe provide an unparalleled range of music, drama, art and other entertainment during August every year.

    Road Directions

    From Edinburgh, or the city bypass, follow the A1 heading south. About five miles from the end of the bypass, take the A198, signposted to Longniddry and North Berwick. At Longniddry, follow the signs for North Berwick.

    On entering the town itself, the road drops sharply and splits as you join the one-way system. Take the second turning on the right into Church Road, and then right again into the High Street, which soon becomes Westgate.

    Approaching from Berwick on the A1, the road for North Berwick is signposted at a roundabout just beyond Dunbar. Follow the signs into the town and into the High Street, which becomes Westgate.

    The Westgate Gallery shop and cafe will be clearly seen on the left, and 47westgate is immediately beyond it.
