We spent a good hour just slowly walking around the harbour taking in the sights and taking photographs. For those interested in wildlife dolphins are regularly seen in the bay.

This place is TRULY heaven to me. A perfect day off to me is sitting here looking at the sea and eating one of Ebbcarr's fresh caught crab sandwich’s straight from the harbour - This is NOT just a sandwich It is Therapy! Utter BLISS!

Went to St abbs for the fair at the local hall. Its on every Friday. From homemade cakes to great photographs. Great choice of stalls. Such a cute village with a great wee harbour that seems to have a big dive industry.

This is an attractive small port which seems to be particularly popular with divers. There is a car park just behind the port, as well as an excellent cafe. The port is very picturesque.

We walked the short coastal path from Coldingham to St Abbs. The views were beautiful. The setting around the harbour is very picturesque. We had a lovely time with friends enjoying the nice weather at the cafe. It was very popular and rightly so.

We saw St Abb’s from a boat trip and called in on our way home. There isn’t much to do as it is TINY but the views are amazing and there is coffee and fish to imbibe!

If you want to visit a lovely fishing village, St Abbs is a must. When we visited there was a hint of the good old sea fret, which some how added to it's charm, lovely walks along the sea wall around the harbour. Very peaceful...More

A beautiful little fishing village reminiscent of South Cornwall but much nicer due to the fact that it was quieter and not highly populated
