Thinking about going on a staycation in Scotland this summer? Go where Alandas goes and visit the east coast to make the most of your holiday.
UK holidays are always centered around food, and what better way to honour the UK than indulging in our delicious fish and chips. Enjoy these with a seaside view, or get a taste of our award-winning gelato in North Berwick or Edinburgh. Make Alandas part of your staycation and visit our sites across Prestonpans, North Berwick and Edinburgh.
Situated 8 miles east of Edinburgh, this small fishing town lies on a gentle slope overlooking the bay towards Edinburgh. Previously a coal-mining town and formerly known as the Battle of Gladsmuir, Prestonpans is full of rich history and heritage.
A must-see when visiting Prestonpans is Preston Tower. If you’re seeking a historic fix then Preston Tower’s ancient ruins from the 14th century are a must-visit. Between this tower and Prestonpans war memorial, it’s bursting at the seams with battle history. Why not stop by Alandas Prestonpans to pick up one of our wood-fired pizzas and take it away to enjoy at Cuthill Park? Handmade pizza dough and flavoursome toppings make the perfect rustic pizza.
If you’ve had enough battle history, take a tour around Prestongrange Museum, full of art and culture and then head down to Gosford Sands beach for some respite. If the weather is fine, have a relaxing sunbathe by the sea, or simply take a stroll along the seafront and finish off your stay with Alandas fish and chips, freshly made and fried to golden perfection.
The quaint seaside town of North Berwick is a royal burgh of East Lothian, where Alandas was first born. Boasting beautiful beaches and panoramic coastlines, North Berwick is a hot spot for holiday makers in the summer months.
Home to Bass Rock and the world famous Muirfield golf course, North Berwick possesses a number of sights and attractions worth visiting. Muirfield is a renowned host for golfing championships, and with it’s beautiful surroundings, it’s a great place to kick off your staycation here in Scotland. Finish up at golf and hire an electric bike to ride around the centre of North Berwick to take in all the sights. Cycle over to Alandas Gelato where we make all of our gelato fresh on the premises to deliver the tastiest, creamiest gelato.
Being such a popular seaside town, there are countless places to visit. So, for breath-taking scenery, take a trip to Alnwick Castle and Gardens and sit in their beautiful grounds, or head to Seacliff beach with Alandas gelato in hand.
Last but not least, the Scottish capital, Edinburgh. Home to beautiful architecture, breath-taking views and winding cobbled streets, the hilly city of Edinburgh is a must-visit to soak up the heritage, culture and arts that the capital so proudly offers.
Fill your itinerary with a wide range of activities and experiences. Spoilt for choice, you can visit Edinburgh castle and take a trip to the old town to soak up the rich history. Finish off your day of exploring with Alandas.
Take in all the sights and partake in experiences and events from the Camera Obscura and World of Illusions, to the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo for a real family fun staycation in Scotland.
Stop off at our new Alandas Gelato store and choose a fruity, refreshing flavour like our fragrant elderflower and raspberry or indulge in our very best belgian chocolate flavour. Take our gelato with you up to the ancient volcano, Arthur’s Seat, to enjoy the awe-inspiring view over Edinburgh. Get involved in an adventure packed trip and walk your way to Inchcolm Abbey and Island to uncover beautiful gardens, the perfect place to re-energise with a sweet treat from Alandas Gelato.
