Holiday cottages in St Abbs are perfect for visitors who want to discover the spectacular coast and countryside of the Scottish borders. This sleepy fishing village lies on the coast of Southeast Scotland, in the county of Berwickshire. Its name comes from St Abbs Head, a craggy finger of land jutting into the sea. Film fans may be interested to know that it is the set for New Asgard in Avengers. The village consists of a tangle of narrow lanes lined with old fishermen’s cottages, descending to a storm-battered harbour. The working harbour is a great place to watch the comings and goings of lobster boats, whose catch includes local edible crabs known as ‘poos’.
Originally built for lighthouse keepers, Near Bank Cottage is a traditional end-terrace, stone-built cottage near St Abbs Head National Nature Reserve and offers guests an open fire and calming views. The pet-friendly property connects to the reserve and to the fascinating Scottish Borders region.
