WELCOME TO THE FOLLY HOTEL
We are situated in the centre of North Berwick, a small town with a long and rich history. Our building is very much part of its heritage, having once been the fire station for the town and also the shop of James Watt, a renowned golf club maker, in the early 1900’s. Now it is a boutique hotel with 7 en-suite rooms, a welcoming breakfast area, and a small bar and lounge for the comfort of our guests.
We are well situated for the many golf courses in the region and we are directly opposite the North Berwick Links golf course. There are over 20 golf courses within a 20-minute drive from our front door, making it a great base for a golfing holiday. We are less than 40 minutes’ drive from Edinburgh, and North Berwick has many bus and train services to get you quickly and effortlessly into Scotland’s capital.
North Berwick is a great base for you to explore all the attractions of the city, as well as exploring the beautiful coast line, quaint villages and many castles in the region. Our little town has a great selection of shops and wonderful restaurants. We also have the Scottish Seabird Centre in the harbour, where you can find out about all the bird life in the area, and take a boat ride out to Bass Rock to get a close look at the famous gannet colony.
You’re also likely to spot puffins and whales in season!
North Berwick is the second to last stop of the John Muir Way. This famous walking trail can be done in 10 days and takes you from coast to coast – from Helensburgh in the west to Dunbar in the east – through the diverse landscape of central Scotland. The Folly Hotel is directly on the route of this wonderful trail.
We have a selection of different room types on offer. Our room rate includes a comprehensive and delicious breakfast. Our staff offer a personal and attentive service and are there to make sure you are comfortable and have a great stay in North Berwick.
We look forward to welcoming you to The Folly.
