Hailes Castle

Reviewed By 14teresa12 - Llanidloes, United Kingdom

This was one of the places we visited on a short stay in this area. It is approached along a single track lane and only has a lay by for a few parking spaces, it's free entry, no toilet/refreshments.
We were lucky to visit when there was no one around, it's a beautiful peaceful spot full of history that's well maintained, it has escaped the usual tourist commercialisation and we just loved our visit. It's not huge and won't take hours to look around but if you are looking at the local Castles it's definitely worth including this one

Preston Mill & Phantassie Doocot Mill

Reviewed By johnhouston2 - Knaresborough, United Kingdom

Although the mill is closed at this time of year, please don't let this put you off visiting.
The buildings are as attractive as I expected, and the main mill doubly so. With its colourful, pointed, skewiff roof and tiny set of rough stone steps, you could be forgiven for expecting to find drawings of the mill in some book of fairy tales. It really is charming.
Parking is on the quiet road, and access is via a short pathway, which is well signposted.

Forth Tours

Forth Tours offer sightseeing tours and cruises of the Firth of Forth and famous Forth Bridges, departing from Hawes Pier in the picturesque village of South Queensferry. Enjoy the wonderful Edinburgh Panorama, trips to the island of Inchcolm and its Abbey, and spot puffins, seals and dolphins. Sit in the heated observation lounge and enjoy a great guided commentary on the history and heritage of the area. Try our Salsa, Jazz and Explorer Cruises too.

Reviewed By SBok - Aberdeen, United Kingdom

WE went on one of the jazz cruises that are run once a month during the summer. Sett off from South Queensferry (which isn't in East Lothian despite what tripadvbisor says!)
Really, really enjoyed it. You go out with a four piece jazz band plating in the corner and cruise along the river Forth in the Evening.
There was a buffet and a bar on board.
It was lovely pulling up alongside Inchcolm abbey at night whilst drinking a glass of wine with a Jazz band playing.

Tyninghame Beach

Reviewed By Luthilu - Lincoln, United Kingdom

When most people go to the East Lothian area and they fancy the beach, they will go to North Berwick, however if you don't fancy the hustle and bustle of a popular seaside resort then maybe this is the place for you.
Before you get to the beach, you can walk via Tyninghame Links, there is a map which shows you some good walking routes, most of it is flat unless you decide to trek up and down the sand dunes.
There are some beautiful sites and you can even see where some people have set up 'glamping' sites or pitched a tent to stay and enjoy the area.
If you decided to go over the Dunes, Ravensheugh Sands, then you will be greeted with the spectacular and unspoilt Tyninghame Beach. The sea is clear and on a sunny day, you could be in the Mediterranean somewhere, it was just glorious.
For families, bring a picnic, there are so many little nooks and crannies for children to venture into. The water is lovely, this would be a good and cheap family day out.

Adventure 001

Reviewed By PengYong - Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Booked a helicopter ride for two which was described as a 'buzz flight'. While a nice experience for first-timers like me, the overall ride (which lasted less than 5 minutes) was underwhelming - you could easily get the same experience and view from a commercial flight!

7. Lothian Sports Massage

High Street | North Berwick, East Linton EH40 3DX, Scotland +44 7912 523832

I provide deep tissue/sports massage at my therapy room in my house, in a clinic in North Berwick or I also provide a mobile service.
