  • Lovely walk around the point. Took the shortest circuit, very rewarding. Some steep hills and last bit over normal roads, but boring.  more »
  • Stunning views along the coastal part of the path - not great if you suffer with vertigo though, due to some of the paths being on the edge of very high cliffs!
  • Huge numbers of seabirds, dolphins, porpoises and the rare Northern Brown Argus butterfly. What's not to love.
  • One of the nicest parts of the Scottish coastline. Completely different to the west coast, more "rolling" than "rugged". Excellent walks, friendly people and a car park nearby. Well worth a day out to visit.
  • Always loved this area, coastal walks, can be a little steep in places but manageable, views over land and sea are stunning, make sure you have a camera or binoculars to take full advantage of your experience here,Scottish nature at its best
  • This is a delightful secluded and atmospheric village built around a small bay. There are caf├ęs and lots of options for exploring the streets and coastal paths. The St Abbs Head area is stunning: wildflowers, sea birds, cliffs and bays. Highly recommended.
