    The Imperial Apartment

    A deluxe 5* self-catering Apartment situated at the heart of North Berwick, East Lothian, Scotland

     

     A deluxe, contemporary, self-catering Apartment situated in the heart of North Berwick, overlooking the High Street and with views of the Bass Rock (and partial sea view) from the Master Bedroom.  Awarded 5* by Visit Scotland.

     

    East Lothian, on the east coast of Scotland, is famous for its stunning rolling countryside, miles of magnificent coastline, golden sandy beaches, not to mention award winning attractions and golf courses.  East Lothian attractions include the award winning Scottish Sea Bird Centre in North Berwick, the National Museum of Flight, Dirleton Castle, Tantallon Castle and Muirfield Golf Course (who proudly hosted the open championship in July 2013). 

     

    Many suggest that this part of Scotland has a unique micro climate with more sunshine hours per year; certainly weather data does seem to back that up! The area is very popular with golfers, cyclists, ramblers, photographers and countless more who enjoy beautiful surroundings with charming villages, historic houses and castles. For more information on all that this beautiful area has to offer please visit www.visitscotland.com

     

    Golfers may like to know that Muirfield (hosts of the 2013 Open Championship) is only 4.5 miles from The Imperial Apartment, as are the splendid new courses at the Archerfield Estate. There are a further 15 golf courses within a 20 minute drive of the Apartment.  Whilst our Apartment is situated on the 2nd floor of the former Imperial Hotel, we offer a large ground floor, heated room to store golf caddies and to dry golf or walking clothing.

     

    For non-golfers, the vibrant and bustling High Street of North Berwick, with its abundance of quality and unique shops, art galleries and restaurants, is only 2 steps from the apartment's front door.

     

    Don’t forget that beautiful Edinburgh, capital of Scotland is only 20 miles away (30 minutes by car or can be reached direct from the regular trains that stop at North Berwick station).
