Frequently Asked Questions
Is there any way to reach Tantallon Castle via public transport from Edinburgh?
In principle, yes.
You simply need to take the train from Edinburg Waverly Station to North Berwick. Once you are in North Berwick, Tantallon Castle is only a few miles away.
You might be able to walk there, but I wouldn’t want to get caught in a Scottish rain on the way, so I don’t advise it. There might be a bus going from the railway station to the castle, but I have never actively looked for it or used it. I simply don’t know.
There is a tourist information in the shopping mall next to Waverly Station, and there is one directly in the center of North Berwick. The friendly people working there will definitely be able to tell your more. (And if they do, I’d be grateful if you could enlighten me on this issue!)
