Visit Berwickshire Coast
Stretching from the Eastern Scottish Border to Cove, The Berwickshire Coast’s strong connection with the sea has shaped the lives of residents for centuries producing a unique heritage, culture, history, nature, and people that have a great appeal to visitors. Visit Berwickshire Coast aims to release the full potential of the area as a tourist and visitor destination by highlighting all the extraordinary features of our wonderful coastline!
HISTORY & CULTURE
Our vibrant fishing communities’ heritage and culture have captured the imagination for generations. With the sneaky smugglers at Gunsgreen House, the passes of Eyemouth Fort between French and English hands, the strength of Willie Spears to fight the fishing levies and the geological discovery by James Hutton there is much to discover!
ADVENTURE & ACTIVITIES
The Berwickshire Coast is a centre of adventure offering diverse activities enhanced by the natural surroundings and stunning clear waters. Hidden from land, why not visit the beautiful coral reefs and colourful marine life at St Abbs, a top diving and snorkelling location, or visit the award-winning Coldingham Sands, the perfect beach for surfing, swimming, and kayaking?
Experience one of the coastline’s unique walking or cycling routes and challenge yourself with Eyemouth’s 6th hole voted Britain’s Most Extraordinary as you hit across the North Sea and Scotland’s longest hole, “The Hawkness Monster”. There is something for all the family!
WILDLIFE & NATURE
Walk the Berwickshire Coastal Path to experience our breath-taking coastline, our abundance of flora and fauna, and our internationally important seabird colony at the St Abb’s Head National Nature Reserve.
Take a boat trip around the Berwickshire Marine Reserve to spot our seal, bottlenose dolphins and minke whales. Don’t forget to look out for swans, otters and the rare Northern Brown Angus butterfly too!
FOOD & DRINK
After seeing the fishermen land their catch at one of our four working harbours, make sure you try our local produce and exciting menu at one of the many eateries. Our abundance of award-winning food including traditional fish & chips, pies, ice cream and drinks make a visit to the coast worth it for the cuisine alone!
