Eyemouth to Berwick upon Tweed

Walking Route

Eyemouth to Berwick upon Tweed


Part 4/4 of the Berwickshire Coastal path route. Key points of interest along this walk: The small harbour at Burnmouth was improved in 1879 and 1959 to serve the shoreline fishing communities of Partanhall, Cowdrait and Ross who shipped out their catches through Upper Burnmouth, which is on the Great North Road and main line railway.

Partan is the local name for a crab.
Berwick upon Tweed : Berwick has changed hands no fewer than fourteen times and although English since 1482, its football team still plays in the Scottish League!
The ramparts provide a popular promenade around the town and were built in their present form in the 16th century in response to the construction of a French fort at Eyemouth. The Barracks were designed by Nicholas Hawksmoor (more famous for his London churches) and built in 1711-21, making them the oldest in Britain. The Tweed is crossed by Old Berwick Bridge (1611) with its fifteen sandstone arches, the Royal Tweed Bridge (1925) and Robert Stephenson’s Royal Border Bridge (1847-50), which carries the main East Coast railway line.
Look out for Twelve Bronze Trail Markers along the full route by artist John Behm and link the four memorial sculptures along the way.
