The Scottish Borders region

Due to its location at the entrance to the Firth of Forth and the immense difficulties presented by clay soils and deep valleys, the area has been the scene of intense human struggles for centuries.

Fast Castle, on a headland visible from Cove, is the most dramatic ruin of a dense network of towers.

Dunglass Collegiate Church is a demonstration of Hume power, in the care of Historic Scotland.

St Helens a ruin and Cockburnspath churches are evocative places with fine headstones.

The whole coast is famous to geologists since the time of Sir James Hall of Dunglass, who publicised his geological experiments in the 1780s and is generally remarkably unspoilt.


Golfing, painting, bird-watching, surfing, sea angling, exploring the richness of the area and relaxation.

There are innumerable excellent local walks all around, inland and along the coast, including a trail of memorials to the 1881 East Coast Fishing Disaster. Cove is also at the end of the Southern Upland Way.

Eyemouth has good museums (in summer) on fishing and boats from all over the world and nearby is Paxton House, an outstation of the National Galleries of Scotland.

Dunbar has its original town house as a local museum and the remains of the birthplace of John Muir, the great American naturalist and philosopher. Near Dunbar is the Museum of Flight.

The annual Flower & Art Shows at Oldhamstocks, Cockburnspath & Innerwick, all are in August.

The annual herring queen ceremonies at Eyemouth and Dunbar are colourful events.

The world famous Edinburgh Festivals in August/September and other festivals of the area.
