There are many walks to do in the area so whether you are an avid walker or prefer an amble to a pub there is something for everyone. There are a few loops around us which mean you don't need to jump in the car which we can tell you about when you come, but here are some of the walks we have done. We haven't done the whole coastal path mind, who knows maybe this is the year!
Great walk around Duns Castle and Nature reserve. Ruby loves doing this walk and we enjoy the ice cream after it! There are some great views from Duns Law on a clear day.

BERWICKSHIRE COASTAL PATH
You can actually walk from Little Lamberton to get down on the coastal path, the path runs for over 45km, so to do the full walk is not for the faint hearted, but there are plenty of sections that can be done. Lots of great views and sights of interest along the way.

AYTON TO EYEMOUTH
A nice little (okay well its about 8 miles so maybe not that little) circular walk. You can walk down to Ayton or drive the car down if you prefer and then head off towards Eyemouth.

THE NATIONAL TRUST FOR SCOTLAND'S ST ABBS HEAD NATURE RESERVE
A really stunning walk in the nature reserve which takes you to the St Abbs Iconic Lighthouse, well worth doing.
St Abbs Walk
Berwick is the most Northerly town in England, famous for its Elizabethan Walls, three iconic bridges, thriving culture scene, wildlife and beaches.
Berwick-upon-Tweed is just a stone's throw from the Scottish Border. The town changed hands 13 times during 300 years of Border warfare, a vivid history which can be experienced best by walking the Elizabethan Walls.
The Walls completely encircle the town affording spectacular views of the three bridges across the River Tweed, the beautiful Georgian buildings on the waterfront and of Bamburgh and Lindisfarne Castles on the distant coast. You could follow the Lowry Trail, if you have a spare 3 hours, there is more information about this trail on our History page.
UNION CHAIN BRIDGE
The Union Chain Bridge spans the River Tweed between Horncliffe, Northumberland, England and Fishwick, Borders, Scotland. The Union Chain Bridge was built in 1820 by Royal Naval Captain Sir Samuel Brown under the guidance of Scottish civil engineers, Robert Stevenson and John Rennie. It is the oldest and longest wrought iron suspension bridge in Britain.
The Union Chain Bridge is near Paxton House, which lies 5 miles south-east of Chirnside. If you have time pop into the Chain Bridge Honey Farm which is just up the road from the bridge. They have a little cafe in an old bus and you can see how they make the local honey.
