Scottish Borders

The Scottish Borders has a beautiful coastline with charming coastal villages and harbours. In the busy fishing port of Eyemouth,  cafés and restaurants offer fresh and tasty seafood dishes and, of course, traditional fish and chips.  From many of the local restaurants, visitors can watch crabs and  langoustines being landed by the fishermen and delivered directly to the restaurant doors. Treat yourself to fresh seafood from award-winning fishmongers on the harbourside, and smoked delicacies from traditional smokeries.  Explore the picturesque villages of St Abbs and Coldingham and further inland, where many restaurants are supplied daily from Eyemouth.

Visit our annual Kirk Square Kitchen event in Eymouth on the first Saturday in June each year.
