The Scottish Borders has a superb coastline extending for approximately 32 miles/50km from Lamberton to Cockburnspath. There are sandstone cliffs reaching nearly 500ft/160m in height in places, many small coves and natural harbours. The birdlife is magnificent, and St Abbs Head, managed jointly by the National Trust for Scotland and the Scottish Wildlife Trust, is a National Nature Reserve. Here as elsewhere on the coast the air is filled with the calls of kittiwake, fulmars, guillemots and gulls. Cormorants perch on the offshore rocks and you may see puffin.
Eyemouth is the only town on the coast, but there are a number of delightful villages including Burnmouth, Coldingham and St Abbs. There is a continuous coast path across the Border from Berwick-upon-Tweed to St Abbs.
