Wild seascapes

Enjoy the wild seascapes of St Abb’s Head, less than an hour from Edinburgh.

Not many people realise that the National Trust for Scotland cares for the habitats of more seabirds than any other organisation in Scotland and the British Isles. We look after over 400 islands and islets as well as huge stretches of coastline.

St Abb’s Head National Nature Reserve is one of the most important of these coastal habitats. It’s probably the most accessible breeding seabird colony on the east coast of Scotland, and there are plenty of other natural delights to cherish and enjoy here as well – wildflowers, butterflies, grey seals, geology – all surrounded by stunning scenery. It’s a privilege to be somewhere that feels like a really wild place, a million miles from anywhere, but is actually just a short distance away from the A1 and Edinburgh.

Only with your help can we carry on protecting places as special as St Abb’s Head.
