The tiny fishing hamlet of Burnmouth enjoys an idyllic location at the foot of the picturesque cliffs of the Berwickshire coast. Uninterrupted coastal views, an interesting rocky shoreline and quaint fishermen's cottages are just some of the features that give Burnmouth its enchanting appeal and in the summer grey seals can often be sighted in the sheltered bay. There is a pub about half a mile away at Upper Burnmouth, and shops in Eyemouth, 3 miles away, and Berwick-upon-Tweed, (with its complete Elizabethan Town Walls), is just 6 miles away. Holy Island, St Abbs with its spectacular diving, the Farne Islands, the wonderful beaches and castles of North Northumberland, and the rolling countryside of the Scottish Borders are all within easy driving distance. Why not visit the vibrant capital city of Edinburgh, only 40 minutes away by rail from Berwick.
