Colin and staff are exceptional. We had arrived late at night - about 9pm - and all four in our group were starving. The staff assured us that it was no problem to prepare dinner and we were treated to a fantastic meal. Many thanks! Next we gathered our keys and entered our rooms for the next few nights. Wow! Very spacious rooms with fantastic views and comfortable bedding. Before retiring for the evening Colin asked of our plans for the following day and made sure that we had breakfast ready in the morning and discussed golf courses in the area.. Outstanding service, fantastic rooms and wonderful pub. Highly recommend this hotel!

Come the weekend we were all ready to go! That weekend we set off for North Berwick; a small beach town a little ways outside of Edinburgh. A super nice little spot with a nice big beach, golf courses everywhere, and a pretty chilled out vibe. We went for a wander down the beach and up through the streets, found a little old lady cafe for a tea and a baked potato. Think that shows you the main demographic ...
... The new town is built of a creamy honey coloured sandstone which has become blackened by all the coal burnt in the past for fires. Some buildings have been cleaned but now there is a problem with an algae forming on the cleaned stone so that the buildings appear green. Apparently the blackened stone is protected from the weather. We arrive at our Hotel, the Crowne Plaza Roxburghe. What a surprise as my Scottish side of the ...
... Berwick is just a few miles on from Yellowcraig. Finally we see the lighthouse on Fidra and know that Yellowcraig is just beyond it. We are back on a track again which includes a dive through stinging nettle alley. Nearly an hour has passed and we finally locate a path at Yellowcraig with clear 'John Muir Way' signage. Ian is all for walking a mile up the road to the bus stop, but it seems a pity to give up now...we ...
... fish & chips. I DID try the haggis...it actually wasn't bad the way it was prepared. I'm still not sure it's something I would order myself, but I can say I tried it and kept it down. LOL
It's still VERY light out at 9 p.m., which makes it seems like it's still early. We'll enjoy a relatively easy day tomorrow, but it'll be exciting seeing two of the biggest and most famous historic sites in the country.
