St Abbs Nature Reserve

Just a few minutes drive from the centre of Coldingham village, St Abb’s Head is the biggest landmark along the Berwickshire coastline.

Although best known as a seabird colony, the Reserve includes approx 200 acres of grasslands rich in flowers, a freshwater loch and a steady stream of migrant birds in spring and autumn.

St Abb’s Head is owned and managed by the National Trust for Scotland.

It is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), a National Nature Reserve (NNR) and a Special Protection Area (SPA) for its seabird interest.

Information boards give details of the footpaths that cross the Head.
