Eyemouth, Duns and Coldstream

Eyemouth, Duns and Coldstream

The Borders region reaches the coast in Berwickshire, with the magnificent nature reserve at St Abb's Head jutting out into the North Sea. With the original county town of Berwick lost to England, Eyemouth is the largest settlement from which to explore the cliffs and beaches of the coastal fringe.

Inland the mighty River Tweed marks the Border for many a mile, with the small town of Coldstream on its banks; it offers some grand riverside walks. North of the Tweed, beyond the town of Duns, the landscape eventually begins to rise into the moors and foothills of the Lammermuirs.
