A beautiful use of the building, incredible views and the artwork was extremely beautiful. The staff member was friendly, chatty and very helpful. Was also great to see what had been spotted, such as dolphins and seals, recently.

Called while visiting St Abbs. Tells you the history of the area and it's people. Also has a telescope trained on the seabirds on the cliffs. Wonderful.

Great views over the harbour and cliffs. Lots of local history and a board saying what's been seen wildlife wise in the last month. Also a rock pool fishtank. It's bright and airy and the staff are friendly.

This is a very informative visitor centre and a great starting point to walk to the lighthouse. The tank of rock pool creatures is particularly good.

Great place to start if you're visiting the area. Some great information and artifacts on display. There's also a telescope set up to view the nesting birds. Great views as well.
