St Abb's Head - Coldingham Bay - Eyemouth - Coldingham
This walk first visits St Abb's Head, returning along a footpath almost to the start of the walk. The route then passes through St Abbs, a tiny village complete with harbour, both joining a coastal path to Coldingham Bay. This golden sandy beach is very popular with holidaymakers in summer. After crossing the beach, the route follows low cliffs and then proceeds along a shore. The way is eventually barred by much higher cliffs, so the route turns inland to climb them and follows them almost all the way to Eyemouth. The route goes out onto the point called 'Hairy Ness'(!), the site of Eyemouth Fort and a dramatic viewpoint back along the coast, before entering Eyemouth itself. From the town centre, which has a tourist information centre, museum, many eating places and an impressive harbour, walkers can catch a regular bus service back to the start, or follow quiet country roads back to Coldingham and through the village back to the start.
