NT5585 : Galloway Pier, North Berwick

Galloway Pier, North Berwick
Galloway Pier, North Berwick
The remains of the Galloway Pier can be accessed from the harbour wall. Opened in 1877, the pier was used by pleasure craft from Leith, Portobello, Elie and Leven. Pleasure cruises stopped in 1914 because of the First World War, and the Galloway Pier was put on sale in 1919, with no takers. By 1926 it was in disrepair and by 1936 an estimated 40,000 was required to restore it. This extravagant cost signalled its demolition. Now, only the lower part remains and is still used at low tide, when docking for the pleasure boats is impossible inside the harbour.
