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.
