Our first day in Scotland, as we left a small village, we read a sign that said "Haste Ye Back". Last night we stayed in the 'Open Arms Hotel'. That really sums up our stay here. The people of Scotland are so very friendly... without exception in my opinion. Now if I could only smarten up a few fellow travellers all would be well.

... on a beautiful stretch of sand with lovely views across to the lighthouse on Fidra. It's also clear enough to see the Fife coastline clearly today. The tide is almost in and we set off in the direction of North Berwick, me splashing through the water and Ian scavenging on the shoreline. We reach the end of the bay and turn the corner into the next. From here we can see North Berwick Law which we climbed yesterday looming in the background. After a while we turn ...

How has this hotel rated in the past?
Having had some less than desirable hotel stays in Scotland we were reluctant to stay in another but, with no B&B's available we gave it a shot. We booked a dinner, bed and breakfast with them and were absolutely astounded at the quality of the food and service we received..and it was quiet! Very nice village, well worth the visit.
