Eyemouth to St Abbs Walk
This walk from the settlement follows a section of the Berwickshire Coastal Path to neighbouring St Abbs Head. It's about a 5 mile hike to the headland, so roughly 10 miles there and back.
The walk starts at the picturesque Eyemouth Harbour where you can pick up the Berwickshire Coastal Path and follow it north west to Hairy Ness, Killiedraught Bay, Linkim Kip and Coldingham Bay before coming to the village of St Abbs.
The route then continues north past Starney Bay, Halterem's Loup, Wuddy Rocks, Burnmouth Harbour and Horncastle Bay before coming to St Abbs Head. There's a wonderful viewpoint here and lots of wildlife to look out for. Keep your eyes peeled for Guillemots, Kittiwakes, Puffins, Razorbills and even dolphins as you make your way along the cliff path.

Back in Eyemouth head to the Ship Inn for some post walk refreshment. The pub is in a great location overlooking the town's picturesque harbour. You can find them at postcode TD14 5HT for your sat navs.
The cliff path makes for a good dog walk but some parts are very high so its best to keep them on leads/under close control here. The Ship mentioned above is also dog friendly.
