A walk around St Abb’s Head, Scottish Borders

St Abbs is a tiny fishing village in Berwickshire, Scottish Borders, whose amenities comprise two cafes, a visitor centre and a car park. We’d never have reason to go there were it not for St Abb’s* Head National Nature Reserve, which I found when looking for coastal walks online. It was a stereotypically ‘Scottish’ day for weather – cold, windy and a little bit drizzly – when we decided to try the walk for ourselves. Fortunately, the wild beauty of this rugged stretch of coast still managed to shine through its overcast coat.

* this is not a typo. According to the official websites, St Abb’s Head has an apostrophe before the ‘s’, despite the village’s name being St Abbs. – I thought this was strange too, but there you go!
