Coastal path added to Scotland’s walking network

A 28-MILE path along the Berwickshire coast has been added to the national network Scotland’s Great Trails.

The 45-kilometre Berwickshire Coastal Path from Berwick to Cockburnspath joins other Borders routes – the St Cuthbert’s Way, Borders Abbeys Way and the Southern Upland Way on the register of national long-distance routes.

Scottish Borders Council’s senior access officer Neil Mackay said: “We’re delighted that the Berwickshire Coastal Path is joining Scotland’s Great Trails. It offers 45 kilometres of spectacular scenery following the internationally-important coastline where you will have the opportunity to explore the coastal geology, sight rare wildlife, including puffins and basking sharks.”
