St Abb's Head National Nature Reserve

Nature Centres & Reserves

St Abbs, Eyemouth, Borders, TD14 5QF

    Formed by an extinct volcano, the St Abb’s Head is the best known landmark along the magnificent Berwickshire coast.

    Sheer cliffs loom from the sea at St Abb's Head, giving dramatic views of the Berwickshire coastline and providing an early summer home for nesting seabirds. Watch the constantly moving mass of birds in the narrow inlets, or admire their swooping flight as they head out towards the stormy seas.

    Rocky grassland at the cliff top is dotted with colourful flowers and fast-moving butterflies, whilst the clear waters of the Voluntary Marine Reserve support a varied marine life.

    The best time to visit is from May to July for seabirds, May to August for flowers, July to August for butterflies, and spring and autumn for migrant birds.

    Facilities include parking at Northfield Farm, a nature centre with a coffee shop and guided National Trust for Scotland walks by arrangement.
