A Weekend in North Berwick

Weekend Away North Berwick Glasgow Girls Guide

North Berwick is just over an hour drive from Glasgow but it feels like a completely different world. I love living in the city but every now and again I feel the need to escape to the country for some relaxation. North Berwick is definitely my happy place. It is a beautiful little seaside town and as soon as I arrive and take a walk along the beach, I feel all the stresses of work and everyday life slip away. The last few weeks have been particularly busy so I was ridiculously happy that I was able to spend this weekend completely relaxing.

It is such a beautiful place so of course I took way too many photos of my weekend. Apologies if this post is a little picture heavy!

I started off Saturday morning with an early morning run along the beach at sunrise. Bonus points if you can spot me and my labrador Lucy frolicking along next to me.

After a shower and a big cooked breakfast we headed out for a walk down the high street. We ended up at the Scottish Seabird Centre for a coffee and of course we had to have some cake too. The Seabird Centre is such a nice place to sit inside and keep warm, while being able to look out over the sea and harbour.

(This was a "Millionaire's Cake". Essentially a chocolate cake inside a toffee sponge with caramel frosting.... it was amazing!)

 The rest of the day was completely chilled with lots of dog walking and relaxing.

In the evening I enjoyed a glass or two (three) of wine before heading for dinner in one of the local Italian restaurants. For dessert I had a gigantic slice of Nutella and Baileys cheesecake, one of the tastiest cheesecakes I think I have ever had. I'm definitely going to try and recreate this soon at home.

The next day we had a leisurely breakfast at our accommodation before heading out for another stroll around the harbour and beach. The weather was a little cold and rainy on the second day but we were wrapped up warm and determined to make the most of the time we had left.

 I had such a lovely weekend. It is always sad to leave but I came home feeling completely refreshed and ready to start the week. That being said I cannot wait for my next trip. 

    See you soon North Berwick!
