We finally arrived in Scotland after being away from home for seven weeks, the bulk of which was in France.
We had planned to stay in Berwick on Tweed but decided to move on to North Berwick.
On route to North Berwick we stopped to take photos of Bass Rock, the largest single island gannet colony in the world, home to an incredible 150,000 gannets. The gannets spend most of the year on the Bass Rock, until the end of October when they set out on their long journey down to the west coast of Africa.
At North Berwick we managed to secure a bed for the night at No 12 Quality Street. I can remember getting Quality Street chocolates when we lived in Scotland.
We did a walk around the town and down by the harbour. Look at that beautiful blue sky.
Close to the harbour there is the Scottish Seabird Centre, unfortunately it was too late in the day for it to be open. Outside the centre there was a lovely sculpture of an Arctic tern.
Close by there was a plaque to commemorate The Royal Air Force Coastal Command.
For our evening meal that night I had Cullen Skink, the taste was incredible. I rhapsodised over the soup to anyone who was willing to listen. My husband had half a lobster which was equally as good.
North Berwick was a delightful place to visit and I would love to return as we barely scratched the surface while we were there.
