Spectacular ruined castle on the East Lothian coast – perfect for small people to run around.
On the day of the great haar by family hiked up to the top of Berwick Law. I put my foot down and said no – on the ground if you couldn’t see the view expending that much effort was a waste of time. I instead retraced my steps back into town and found Steam Punk Coffee and had a much needed croissant and drink. And realised I’d seen their camper van at the Stockbridge Farmers Market. Anyway they appeared to be doing a roaring trade with the locals and with tables outside the dogwalkers!
As both my brother and sister-in-law are engineers a trip to the Falkirk Wheel was in order. This is the world’s only boat lift, designed to take the place of a series of locks which had fallen into disrepair and use. Each lift of a boat uses only the power of 8 kettles being boiled!
