Berwickshire Coastal Path - Self Guided
Stretching for some 29 miles from Cockburnspath in the north down to the English Border and Berwick-upon-Tweed, the Berwickshire Coastal Path provides some superb walking.
The route takes in some dramatic clifftop scenery complete with arches, stacks and crumbling castles. It rounds St Abb's Head, a National Nature Reserve renowned for its birdlife, to reach the attractive fishing village of St Abbs. Several sandy beaches are reached en-route to the town of Eyemouth, before the final stage leads on along the cliffs to cross the Border to Berwick upon Tweed.
Accommodation is in well-appointed bed and breakfasts, inns and small family run hotels. Mouthwatering traditional breakfasts are provided and evening meals can be taken in restaurants or pubs close to the accommodation.
We book all your accommodation, take you to the start point, transfer your luggage and then provide you with maps and an itinerary for you to do the trail unguided.
