Prestige property: Coastal wonder Canty Bay House wows with captivating views of East Lothian

North Berwick in East Lothian consistently appears in lists of the best places to live in the UK. And Canty Bay House, which is just over a mile out of the town, must be one of the area’s finest homes – in one of the most impressive locations in the region.

It is a spectacular coastal property on a stunning cliff-top position with breath-taking views over the Firth of Forth.

Today’s house started life as an inn for travellers, which was built on the site around 1900.

Pre-World War Two postcards survive which advertise lunches at the inn, for those making a stop-off on their way to North Berwick, for a very reasonable one and six.

The present-day occupant bought the house in 2009 and embarked on a major refurbishment and extension project. The work took the original four-bedroom property and added a new kitchen and dining room, plus three more ensuite bedrooms.

Canty Bay House, North Berwick, is priced at offers over £1.45m.
