A brief trip to the Scottish Borders last weekend gave us the opportunity to explore a couple of lesser known locations on the coast below Dunbar.

Cove Harbour was one such location. The tiny natural harbour was improved in 1831 by the building of a breakwater and to all intents and purposes not much has changed since then!

Access to the harbour from land is via a tunnel through the cliffs that was dug by hand in the 1700s, a tunnel that has a number of side chambers that were used for storing fresh fish (and no doubt a variety of smuggled goods!) The chambers continued to be used as changing rooms by bathers until they were sealed up in 1981.

It’s a location I’m very keen to return to!
