Eyemouth and St. Abbs Head Walk

Quick Details

Coastal Walk From Eyemouth to St. Abbs Head

Setting off from the attractive fishing harbour of Eyemouth on the Berwickshire Coast, we head north along the coast path. This is a landscape very different from the Northumberland Coast further south. Here, high sandstone cliffs dominate, some of them 100 metres or 328 feet high, giving some exceptional coastal walking.

Along the way to St. Abbs, we pass through the seaside resort of Coldingham and the village of St. Abbs itself. Beyond St. Abbs, we enter the National Nature Reserve, where in the spring and summer, thousands of guillemots nest in impossible locations on the cliff faces and in the winter, it’s about as wild and lonely as it’s possible to be. The scenery and wildlife are sure to amaze you.

We return to St. Abbs for refreshments before catching a bus back to Eyemouth, having completed a walk along some of the best and wildest coast in southeast Scotland.
