Berwickshire Coastal Path

48 km / 30 miles

Northumberland, Borders
The Path crosses farmland and cliff tops as it passes through Burnmouth, Eyemouth and St Abbs. Some of the cliff walking is very exposed and reaches a maximum height of 340ft. A short extension to the route can be gained by taking advantage of the paths of the National Nature Reserve of St Abbs Head.
