Set in a former Royal Burgh, North Berwick is a popular seaside town in Scotland and an ideal choice for retirement.
The town is found on the Firth of Forth, which boasts two beautiful sandy bays for those looking to explore the local landscape. The waters of the Firth of Forth are rich in marine wildlife, including seals, dolphins and whales to name a few.
Other local natural attractions include Bass Rock, dubbed “one of the wildlife wonders of the world” by Sir David Attenborough. The rock is a haven for birds and local wildlife; home to 150,000 gannets as well as puffins, guillemots, shags, and kittiwakes. Regular wildlife cruises operate from the local harbour to let locals and visitors explore this diverse landscape.
In addition to this, there is also a Scottish Seabird Centre located in the town while ferry routes operate from the harbour to Anstruther in Fife for even more exploration opportunities. Other local transport links are provided by the local bus routes and local train station which support regular connections to Edinburgh, just over a mile away.
Those with sports interests can take advantage of two local golf courses, both of which offer impressive facilities. For more practical needs, our development is conveniently located adjacent to a local supermarket while a selection of boutique shops and national retailers can be found in the town centre.
History buffs will also find plenty to keep themselves occupied in the area, with the ruins of both Tantallon and Dirleton castles found on the edges of the town and offering a unique glimpse into Scottish history.
