North Berwick is Top Scottish Seaside Resort
North Berwick has been ranked the top Scottish seaside resort and fourth best in the UK in a recent poll by Which?

Around 3,000 people took part in the poll which looked at which coastal havens were the best and worst in the UK, with North Berwick scoring 83% based on 10 categories including quality of the beach, attractions food and drink and peace and quiet.

The latest recognition for the town does not surprise Sandy Casey, Director of Walker Group which has a development, Glen Ora in the town.

She says that North Berwick has become a real hotspot for househunters from the capital who are drawn to the golden sands, fantastic art scene and more laid-back lifestyle on offer in the town.

“On a sunny day I can’t think of anywhere nicer to spend time, North Berwick has it all – a fantastic beach, great bars and restaurants, highly rated schools and a thriving art scene.

“There is a real buzz about the town in the summer months and this year’s Fringe By The Sea in August has an amazing line up from Groove Armada and Eddi Reader to Kirsty Wark and Ian Rankin.”

When it comes to a forever home, it would be hard to beat the four bedroom Arlington priced at £410,000. This stylish four bedroom home has a flexible layout downstairs, with a large open plan kitchen with family area, an impressive lounge and a third public room which could be used as a study, television, dining room or even a fifth bedroom.

The Arlington has an impressive first floor with the master bedroom featuring an ensuite and a contemporary bathroom.

Also currently available is the five bedroomed Brampton priced at £430,000 which features an Instagram-worthy open plan dining kitchen. There is also a bright lounge and a fifth bedroom downstairs, which could equally be used as a study, a great spot for a bookcase for all those recipe books, or TV room.

Upstairs the master bedroom has an ensuite and there are three other bedrooms and a contemporary family bathroom.
