The Berwickshire Coast Path may not be the longest of its kind but it still offers a terrific walking experience packed with geological sites and places of historic interest as well as uninterrupted views of the North Sea and the second-highest cliffs on Britain’s east coast.
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.
The Berwickshire Coastal Path is well waymarked for most of the route. The going is reasonably straightforward with some steep ascents and descents. Care is needed by unprotected cliff edges but a great area to explore on foot.
