Tantallon Castle

We popped down to North Berwick today and had a wee coffee at The Den which boasts a midcentury modern furniture shop,  Annie Sloan paints, a workshop along with a lovely little cafe.  There is a definite Scandi feel to the place food wise the website is here (but I think they are more active on twitter and Facebook).

Tantallon Castle was our next stop on our East Lothian trail. Read all about it here. Beware, photo overload below….

I know this might be getting boring now but the clouds were amazing today.

Our last stop was a delightful little nursery and tea shop in East Linton called Smeaton Nursery Gardens.  We couldn’t resist some potted bulbs and a stick on the window bird feeder which I will show you once it is installed.  There are loads of little blue tits in the garden at the moment, I’m hoping they will come and use it so we can get a good look at them.
Have you got gamers in your family?  Try to get to see the Games Masters exhibition on at Royal Museum of Scotland.  It’s got loads of those old arcade games that some of you will remember from the Lothian Road days here in Edinburgh.  Can you remember the name of that place?  Let me know if you do…

Anyway have a great weekend, February has gone in a flash so far hasn’t it?

  1. love the picture through the arch 🙂 Thanks for tip to got the games master exhibition. We went on Sunday morning and had an amazing time. Ben and I loved Pac Man and Donkey Kong. I really liked the way they had it set up from retro to modern
