House on the hill by Tom Gomez

This house is on the cliffs above St. Abbs Harbour.

St. Abbs is a small fishing village located on the southeast coast of Scotland, in the committee area of Berwickshire, Scottish Borders region.

The village was originally known as Coldingham Shore, the name was changed in the 1890’s to St. Abbs. The new name was derived from St Abb’s Head, a rocky promontory located to the north of the village, itself named after St. Aebbe.

St. Abbs is a popular site for Scuba Divers. The sea around the village is unusually clear, in contrast to the more silt-laden coastal waters further to the north or south. These clear waters and the spectacular underwater scenery resulted in Britain’s first Voluntary Marine Reserve being established at St. Abbs. The Marine Reserve was established on 18 August 1984 by David Bellamy.
