Seals of St Abbs

Just an ordinary, cold, sunny day with Neil on the Berwickshire Coastal Path from Dowlaw to St Abbs. With added seals! We got so close to them, the wee white ones are just pups, only a couple of weeks old.

Apparently they come here every winter for a couple of months of breeding. We saw them in three different bays along St Abbs Head. An absolute treat.

The views were pretty amazing, on a par with my last trip here a few months back.  There are a couple of old stone/bronze/iron forts where the rings of trenches and barriers are really clear.

The cliffs are truly spectacular.

Pettico Wick was lovely wee stone beach and harbour, where the seals set up camp to breed and the national trust ranger, a guy called Kieran, had set up camp to observe.  And we spent a lovely 10 minutes chatting about the seals behaviour and watching them through binoculars.

The rock formations in the background gave us a lot of pause for thought too.  Nature at its best in one small bay.

More seals were to be found in each of the next three bays.

Two sections of this coastal path completed, two to go at some point.

Exploring the hills and glens of Scotland on foot is my passion. A quick cycle, a days snowboarding or a multi-day hike, I'm happiest discovering something new about our gorgeous country and hopefully I can motivate others to do the same. I try my hand at most things, snowboarding, film making, sheep shearing, eating, sports, sports bars, other bars, barbells etc. Come along and see for yourself.
