The Royal Burgh of North Berwick is a seaside town in East Lothian. It is situated on the south shore of the Firth of Forth, approximately 25 miles east of Edinburgh and has a population of under 8,000 people. North Berwick became a fashionable holiday resort in the 19th century because of its two sandy bays, the East (or Milsey) Bay and the West Bay, and continues to attract holiday makers to this day. Golf courses at the ends of each bay are open to visitors. Accessible by a frequent rail service from Edinburgh which has made it popular for commuting to the capital city in recent years.
