Berwickshire Coastal Path

<<<<<                              >>>>>


This is a 4-stage walk following the Berwickshire coast from Cocksburnpath to Berwick-upon-Tweed. There are sections where the path may be indistinct and navigation skills are required.

The Berwickshire Coastal Path (BCP) is one of Scotland’s Great Trails.

It takes in dramatic clifftop scenery with arches, stacks and the crumbling remains of Fast Castle. The BCP rounds St Abb's Head, a National Nature Reserve renowned for its birdlife, to reach the attractive fishing village of St Abbs and not long after that the small town of Eyemouth. The long final stage leads on along the cliffs to cross into England to finally finish at Berwick-upon-Tweed.
