North Berwick fights for Best Place to Live crown

Have your say

NORTH Berwick is among the contenders to be crowned Best Place to Live in the UK in a new Twitter poll.

The East Lothian town is one of 16 nominations for the title drawn from votes on the micro-blogging website.

North Berwick was initially proposed for the honour by Scottish law firm Lindsays, and has been backed by county MP Fiona O’Donnell, who urged her 1200 followers to give the town their vote.

In the pitch, North Berwick was described as “a coastal gem, just 30 minutes from the heart of Edinburgh with fantastic property and the great outdoors”.

Other towns and villages vying for the title run by the website PropertyPage, include parts of Pembrokeshire, Ely in Cambridgeshire, Tunbridge Wells in Kent, Brighton, Oxford, and Parliament Hill in London.
