About Ferrygate

Ferrygate is situated just outside the charming seaside town of North Berwick, with its sandy beaches, renowned golf courses and stunning coastline.

Nearby North Berwick station offers regular trains directly into Edinburgh in a little over half an hour, giving you the flexibility to enjoy a home in a coastal retreat, but within easy reach of the city.

In partnership with the Scottish Government, we are developing eight affordable homes, situated off Direlton Road, the western edge of the town.

  • Integrated fridge freezer
  • Stainless steel sink with Vado Monobloc tap
  • Contemporary white bathroom suite by Ideal Standard

Situated approximately 25 miles north-east of Edinburgh, North Berwick boasts a beautiful coastal setting and a picturesque harbour. Beaches have golden sands and rocks, and there’s a tide-filled boating pond/paddling pool on the East Sands.

North Berwick high street has gift shops and galleries galore, while the choice of food and drink ranges from fine dining restaurants serving award-winning cuisine to friendly pubs dishing up hearty and wholesome fayre.

For those who enjoy an active lifestyle, you’re close to renowned golf courses and beautiful countryside. The East Lothian coastal path also passes through the town. North Berwick offers striking views out to the Firth of Forth and Bass Rock, the world’s largest northern gannet colony.

There’s a regular bus service between Edinburgh and North Berwick and local bus services run throughout East Lothian. Regular rail services also run from Edinburgh to nearby North Berwick station.

The town’s nursery and primary schools have an excellent reputation and North Berwick High School was recently identified as one of the top state schools in the UK.
