Close to a nature reserve and a lovely beach, Rocklyn will provide a memorable holiday no matter what you plan to get up to on your Scottish holiday.


The cottage was lovely. It is furnished to a very high standard and was very comfortable. There is a superb view of the harbour and the sea just a very short walk away. St. Abbs is a little gem, with a small shop and two great cafes. Early morning walks round the small harbour were a delight. There are lovely coastal walks, especially on St. Abb's Head.

The situation of the property is excellent and the coastline here is fabulous.

Local Postoffice does just about everything you can forget - it worked for me. Remember your in Scotland - dont ask for COD! The house is a fishermans place done up to modern standards - very nicely - fridge/freezer tv has been updated to flat screen. Bring a non stick pan with you! If you like scuba this is the dogs - local walks are 'invigourating - the trip to the lighthouse should not be taken lightly (nor should you take a bike - I did.!!)

Excellent cottage in ideal location.
Mrs Mortimer

The cottage was spotless and had wonderful local walks on the doorstep.
