The first part of this walk as far as Burnmouth is excellent - an airy clifftop stroll. Things then deteriorate with a long dreary section where the route follows the railway line rather than the coastline before improving again. Incidentally the route out of Eyemouth is far from obvious and bears little relation to that shown on the OS Explorer map.

My wife and I are walking around the coastline of GB and last weekend we reached this part. Walking up from the south we have also reached Llandudno on the west side.
We started from Berwick and we missed the beaches which had been in adundance in the 3 previous days. There were two highlights on this walk for us. The first was discovering Burnmouth, we had no idea that the lower part sat on a small bay way below the cliff top. The second was the walk into Eyemouth, we love it when you have a long gradual downhill walk into a small town or village which you can see as you approach.
Signs tried to divert us off the coast at the border but as I didn't have this diversion on my OS map we continued along the railway line. Very soon the coast path signs reappeared again.
Looking forward to coming back soon to finish the rest of the BCP
