St Abbs

 

This is yet another all day tour for the ones who love good whisky seafood and phenomenal scenery.

Once again we begin from the capital city and head southwards yes southwards down the A1 to the direction of the border between Scotland and England. On the way we can pass by Arthur’s Seat, Holyrood Palace and Portobello beach and then through the costal towns of Musselburgh and Prestonpans before joining the A1.

Our first destination will be Glenkinchie Whisky Distillery in Pencaitland where you will be able to go on a tour of your choice and taste the local malt, as well as learning how they produce the whisky. The tour itself will last for about an hour or so depending on which tour you choose to go on.

We will then head back down the A1 and pass by Haddington, East Linton and Dunbar on our way to St Abbs. On arrival you will be able to see the amazing cliffs, water and beautiful scenery as well as a visit into the visitor centre which is loaded with information and encourages walks and points of interest.

From this point, (after spending the leisure time you wish to explore the splendour on offer) we will head just down the road to the village of St Abbs where you can take in the harbour and local sights. In the village itself there is the old schoolhouse restaurant where you can sample the local produce being the fresh seafood as well as a selection of traditional dishes.

On our return to capital city we will leave the A1 and take the coastal route and pass through North Berwick, and Gullane which is the home of the east coast links golf courses where there are many wonderful golf clubs to take in including Muirfield Links which hosts the British Open every so often. We will be able to make a stop to enjoy the surroundings of this part of the country.

Back on our journey up the coast we will pass through Aberlady, Longniddry, Prestonpans Musselburgh and Portobello where we will have a view of the beaches and a picturesque sighting of the Fife coast across the Forth Estuary before heading back to the city centre.
