St Abb's Head National Nature Reserve
St Abb's Head is a National Nature Reserve and important site for cliff-nesting seabirds from May to August. Visitors can watch them wheeling and diving in countless numbers below the high cliffs here on the edge of the North Sea. The 90m high cliffs are home to colonies of guillemots, kittiwakes, razorbills, shags, fulmars, puffins and herring gulls which nest on narrow ledges from April to August. There is an exhibition at the visitor centre and ranger-guided walks are available.
