Take a walk on the Berwickshire Coastal Path

With four main sections, the Berwickshire Coastal Path is the ideal place to take in the sights of Berwickshire’s picturesque coast. The third section of the Path takes you from St Abb’s to Eyemouth, by Coldingham Bay Beach and past the village of Coldingham. At just 3.7 miles it’s the shortest section of the complete 30 mile path, and makes for a lovely walk during your visit to Scoutscroft. You can access the Path from The Creel Road in Coldingham, adding an extra 2 miles onto the total distance of the walk.

Walk the Southern Upland Way eastern route

The Southern Upland Way is the only official coast to coast long distance walking route which crosses Scotland from west to east. Coldingham Bay is just a short distance from the easternmost point of the route. The final stage of the walk, from Longformacus to Cocksburnspath is an impressive 18 miles and is easily accessible during your stay at Scoutscroft. This stage crosses moorland, farmland, woodland and clifftops.

Get in touch with nature at St Abb's Head Nature Reserve

Just a short drive, or walk if you are feeling up to it, from Scoutscroft Leisure Park you will find the beautiful St Abb’s Head Nature Reserve, a haven for birdwatchers, nature lovers and walkers. There are amazing sea views where you can get up close to feathered friends and then head inland to the Mire Loch to visit swans, ducks, butterflies and more.

Take a trip to Siccar Point

The amazing Siccar Point is just a few short miles from Coldingham. This Site of Special Scientific Interest is famously known as the birthplace of modern geology and well worth a visit. Walking to Siccar Point from Coldingham is quite a feat but is possible by following the Berwickshire Coastal Path north and diverting off the path when you reach the minor road leading to Drysdales vegetable processing plant.

With its breath-taking scenery, the Berwickshire Coastal Path is not one to be missed.

Take to the hills in Duns

More experienced walkers might want to check out the 20 mile Harden Hills circular route during their stay at Scoutscroft. Just 13 miles away in nearby Duns, you can take to the hills and enjoy incredible views across the Scottish Borders, including the Cheviot Hills and the Eildon Hills. The circular is 19.5 miles starting at Duns Castle, but can be shortened easily if you don’t feel up to completing the whole route.
