About St Abb's Head National Nature Reserve
This cliff-top nature reserve has fresh sea air and rugged coastal scenery aplenty. It gives you the feeling of being somewhere really wild and remote, yet it’s just off the A1. You can easily spend hours in the summer months watching and listening to the thousands of seabirds who nest in the high cliffs. Away from the cliff’s edge a carpet of wildflowers spreads out among the grassland – look out for sea pinks, rock rose, wild thyme and purple milk vetch. The nature reserve also boasts a wealth of other wildlife, as do the surrounding waters.
