St Abb’s Head National Nature Reserve has spectacular cliff-top scenery, and a chance to feel as if you are somewhere really wild just a short walk from civilization. In the summer months, tens of thousands of nesting seabirds jostle for space on the cliffs, and beautiful carpets of wild flowers adorn the grasslands behind. The Reserve boasts a wealth of other wildlife, as do the surrounding inshore waters, which form part of Scotland’s only Voluntary Marine Reserve. You can learn more about the wildlife and history of the area at the Nature Centre (grid ref NT 913 674), or join a ranger-led walk.
Reserve always open, nature centre open 1st April-31st October 10am-5pm
