Glorious views of the dramatic St Abbs coastline. We kept the dog on a lead for some parts of the walk, but she could run about for much of it. Not too difficult walking terrain, a little up-and-down, back on the road

We spent a little bit of time in St Abbs yesterday. A small village with harbour and lifeboat station. The cliff walk to the north through the NNR is stunning. Well worth the trip and you can get good products from Abbs Carr cafe

Response from Brian M | Reviewed this property |
The two most likely birds of prey to be seen in the area of the cliffs I would suggest are Peregrine Falcon or Kestrel. I've usually seen the Peregrines on my trips here.
