Just 1 day? (its not enough!)

  • Walk around the St Abbs National Nature Reserve, to the iconic lighthouse and stunning views from Petticowick .                                   

  • Wander around the photogenic little harbour and visit the Lifeboat shop to hear the story of the independent lifeboat.                                         

  • Take a breathtaking boat ride on Riptide to get up close and personal with marine and bird life.                   

  • Visit Number 4 Gallery to see some beautiful contemporary art and craft work.                                             

  • Try some incredible Cullen Skink at Ebbcarrs cafe in the harbour, or some delicious homemade cakes at The Old School Cafe at the top of the hill.        

  • Visit St Abbs Visitor Centre and do one of their historic walking tours. 

.....and then for Day 2

  • Stop for lunch at one of the many bars, cafes and chippies in Eyemouth, or sample the wares from the award winning Loughs Bakery (their almond tart is to die for!!).                            

  • Feed the seals on the harbour - they are resident and quite chubby!

WE ARE CLOSED AT THE MOMENT DUE TO GOVERNMENT RESTRICTIONS. We hope to open on 26th April in line with the First Minister's roadmap out of lockdown. If you wish to book for any time after this date, please check availability here on the website, but then email us to book provisionally (and without payment), rather than booking through our booking function - this just makes it easier all round if the booking needs to be cancelled!  


Please note that we are following all social distancing and enhanced cleaning protocols in the B&B in line with national guidelines.  

Please do not book or visit us if you find you are experiencing any of the recognised Covid 19 symptoms.
