Berwickshire Coast

The unspoiled beauty of the Berwickshire Coast stretches for dozens of miles from the north of England to the far southeast of Scotland. Plains, mountains, cliffs, and the North Sea create a picturesque landscape along a narrow path. The coast is not densely crisscrossed with roads but leads to small, colorful fishing villages and resort towns both on the coast and inland. The locals are quite friendly and can always suggest the most interesting places for you to explore. Don't be afraid to socialize – it will further diversify and enrich your walk. Harbors are worth paying special attention to, as they offer spectacular views, interesting activities, and plenty of places to have fun.

Don't worry about going hungry at stopping points; you will always find places to eat for every budget and taste. Check out the stores if you have a long journey ahead, whether on foot or by car.
