Holy Island & Berwick

A journey thorugh the beautiful east coast of Scotland

Holy Island is a tidal island and tides come up twice a day.

Join us on a great day trip to officially the sunniest area of Scotland, North Berwick in East Lothian! Combining the best of Scotland in miniature, here you'll find historic castles and great walks, golden beaches, spectacular cliffs, the world's finest selection of links golf courses and much more. We will enjoy fantastic 360 degree sceneries and spectacular panoramic views as we walk up the North Berwick Law, overlooking the Bass Rock Island and Tantallon Castle. You will be fascinated by the amazing volcanic island of Bass Rock, sometimes appearing all white as it is home to 150 000 gannets, making it the largest single island gannet colony in the world! You can watch the birds, including puffins, on cameras at the Scottish Seabird Centre, or get closer to them by taking a very short boat trip around the Rock.This Day Trip also includes visiting Holy Island, a tidal island connected to the mainland by a causeway. Twice a day the tide sweeps in from the North Sea and covers the road, which is an incredible phenomenon to see! At the tip of the island, you will be amazed by the majestic views of Lindisfarne Castle dating back to 1550. You will also enjoy the romantic Lindesfarne Priory when visiting Holy Island. For those who love spectacular coastal scenery, great walks, golden beaches, wildlife, history and architecture, this day trip will be an awesome experience and is definitely not to be missed!
