I was here in the Summer - it was a lovely day as well [lets face it we were short of a few of those this year ! ] and had a great time.
Its a short drive from North Berwick and Dirleton is a charming little Village . I've eaten in the Dirleton Arms as well.
Tantallon Castle is my other favorite and whilst I think it has the most spectacular setting , Dirleton is better preserved imho. There is definitely a feeling of old times/people long gone about the place and I loved wandering around. In particular there is a little room with seats [ you can see it in a previous reviewer's photo's ] which is amazing. Certainly you could let your imagination run riot here but if you prefer something a little more factual there is a wikipedia page.
Overall a great place for an outing in a charming village in wonderful East Lothian.
