Scottish Borders

A hamlet on the Berwickshire coast of the Scottish Borders, Burnmouth lies at the foot of cliffs 6 miles (10 km) northwest of Berwick upon Tweed. A harbour was built in 1830 and a railway station opened at the top of the cliffs in 1846, which operated until 1962, although the railway remains operational as the East Coast Main Line. Burnmouth Primary School closed in 2005. The settlement now comprises fishermen's houses and holiday cottages.
