Cockburnspath to Dowlaw

This first section of the Berwickshire Coastal Path is a gentle introduction with easy walking above the picturesque Cove harbour and through farmland with some sections on minor roads to finish at Dowlaw. Could be combined with the second section to make a longer day finishing at St Abbs.


Farm and coastal paths, tracks and minor road. Some steep ascents and descents and unprotected cliff edges. Grazing animals - dogs to be kept under tight control.

Public Transport

Bus to Cockburnspath, no public transport at Dowlaw; fitter walkers could continue by walking the next stage to St Abbs.
