Amazing St. Abbs Head National Nature Reserve is nine miles north from Berwick-upon-Tweed. The fantastic views. The large variety of seabirds, the wild flowers, the butterflies, some of which I believe are rare.

This is a brilliant walk for blowing away the cobwebs and most of it is on good paths. Allow 2-3 hours and wear proper boots. You walk along the cliff tops and inland where there is a beautiful loch to walk around. There is a lighthouse too and the wardens accommodation. It is an amazing place to see the breeding birds and chicks on the cliff face: feeding gannets, razorbill, guillemot, cormorant, shag, puffin and many many more.

There is also a tiny little harbour full of colourful boats and a bustling little café, a first class art gallery and a stunning visitor centre. What more can I say? This is a fabulous place to visit; Scotland at its very best and a photographers dream. Take a picnic from Deyn’s Deli and you are set for the day.
