Even if walking isn’t your main reason for visiting Eyemouth, you’ll find it a great way to see this lovely area. We have about 32 miles of stunning coastline stretching from Lamberton on the England/Scotland Border to Cockburnspath. Inland, you can explore valleys, follow rivers and streams and discover pretty villages, farms and settlements.
There is a network of pathways all over East Berwickshire, some suitable for short walks, some more challenging. As well as enjoying the scenery – whatever the season – you stand a chance of seeing animals, birds and even butterflies you may never have seen before. Guided walks are regularly held, helping visitors find out more about the area.
Exploring on foot will take you to historical sites you may otherwise have driven right past. There are beautiful old churches and monuments, the ruins of forts and castles. Some of the paths you walk on are ancient themselves, such as the Creel Path between St.Abbs and Coldingham, which fishermen used for centuries to transport their catches inland.
Eyemouth & District Walking Weekend will take place on 7th-9th June 2013. Head to www.eyemouthwalking.com for more information.
