While our selection of North Berwick as a launching place for Edinburgh was random, it could not have been more fortunate, as was our selection of the Glengair B&B. A lovely home with an exquisite garden, our room had a nice view of the quaint, even pristine town of North Berwick, with the wonderfully-named Firth of Forth as our backdrop.
The lodging itself, while clean, comfortable and well-appointed, was exceeded by our welcoming, friendly hosts Val and Charles, who not only created a perfect experience, but who also managed to have my wife and I feel that we were with old friends, even begging them to visit us in Colorado.
We would both absolutely love to repeat our stay, and hope to do so.
(PS: Val's suggestion of Osteria as a superb restaurant was spot on... one of the best meals we experienced anywhere in Britain).
