Day Trip: Holy Island of Lindisfarne

28 Jun

If you have a car, and you fancy a quick trip across the border, the Holy Island of Lindisfarne is a great place to go for a day trip.  There is a beautiful castle, a ruined abbey, cute little village and plenty of rock pooling action if that’s what you’re into.  If you catch it on a nice day it is just stunning and well worth a visit.  Also great for bird watchers, though I won’t promise the birds of prey I got to see when I was there.


Day Trip: North Berwick

20 Jun

North Berwick is a lovely little sea-side town only 30 mins from Edinburgh by train.  If you have a spare afternoon on a sunny day it is well worth a visit.  Paddle in the sea (if you’re brave!), wander along the beach and soak in the rays.  Just make sure you pack a good coat, as no matter how sunny it is, the wind here is ferocious and I’d hate for anyone to get cold.
