"sentimental journey" North Berwick by iaint

North Berwick Travel Guide: 40 reviews and 91 photos

where it all started...

My first holiday!

Beside the sea in sunny Scotland (probably cold and grey, in reality). I think 1955, which would make me 2+.

I'm not sure if we would have been living in Edinburgh or Inverness at that time.

why I'm writing this!

I was back there this week (last week of August 2007) and it was only when I began to think about previous visits over the years that I remembered I had my first holiday there.

Accordingly, a VT page and a few tips are compulsory, and long overdue!

regular visitor

For many years I couldn't really claim to be a frequent visitor, but definitely regular.

My parents lived a few miles away since 1982, after 25 years in Edinburgh. Their village is nice, but small. Sometimes you need to go elsewhere, and you have to if you need a supermarket and other "townie" facilities (like a bank!). So, over the years I have often ended up in NB for a few hours.

For several months in I was in town every week as my father was in a nursing home there until he died in February 10.

Some mixed memories now...

    I used to enjoy our trips to N Berwick when i was a child, and would that be the Dunbar Rock in the background?

    A trip down memory lane for me also. Visited here in 1986. Is the outdoor swimming pool still here?
