St Abbs is a fishing village north of Eyemouth on the Berwickshire coast.
The remote fishing village of ST ABBS has a rugged setting, surrounded by jagged cliffs, and old fishermen's cottages tumbling down to the surf-battered harbour. The village is named after Abba - no, not that Abba, but a 17th-century Northumbrian princess who struggled ashore here after being shipwrecked and promptly founded a nunnery. Sea angling, sub-aqua diving, bird-watching and regular sightseeing boat trips run from the harbour.
St Abb's Head National Nature Reserve comprises 200 acres of wild and rugged coastline with sheer, seabird-nesting cliffs rising 300ft above the water. From the top of these you'll get a spectacular view of the rugged Berwickshire coast - especially at high tide on a stormy day.
Surfers hang out at Coldingham Bay, with its fine sandy beach, to the south of St. Abbs.
