    Not only was the boat ride thrilling the chats at each stop were very informative. Safety equipment supplied, recommend a hoodie and some sun glasses

    Excellent wildlife sea trip with Liza today from Eyemouth to St. Abbs Head. Great boar and journey with Liza sharing a tremendous amount of knowledge about sea birds and the geology. I’d definitely recommend and do this again.

    Minus the "Privileged" reply below, I have been here various times with friends, family and just on the whim... This dude that runs the show is one of a kind of man, honest, reliable and very helpful. Each and every time I have arrived without arranged appointment the staff including OWNER have been more than extraordinary... I understand why the restrictions as it is PRIVAT£ land, which WE appreciate and adore.. This resort is a MUST to see and go to for a friendly and helpful first time experience for beginners and advanced. This resort keeps the simple, simple.... with the upmost respect to "Considerate" fellow learners. 5X I have been with my son, the Smile on his face...! when he caught his first fish, it was more than priceless... This place creates memories forever that cannot be forgotten.. 100% 5*

    A fantastic experience. My first try of snorkelling and I am hooked. Genine was so well organised and really looked after us. Coldingham beach is a perfect snorkelling destination and the sealife was abundant. Genine's knowledge added to the experience. Practical points for good parking, toilets, cafe. Great equipment, with time and care to make sure we were well fitted. Good value too. Great for anybody - friends, family, solo, groups and any age.

    What a fantastic day fishing the Tweed for salmon. Bill was brilliant. As a complete novice I didn't really know what to expect. My day started with Bill making sure I was properly kitted out and ready to go. After carefully explaining what we were going to do he spent time helping me practice various casting techniques and methods. He was incredibly knowledgeable, professional, encouraging, extremely patient and humorous. Nothing was too much trouble to him. Fishing with such a brilliant guide in such stunning surroundings is an experience I won't forget. Although I didn't catch anything (although I nearly did!) I'm absolutely hooked on Tweed salmon fishing and I'll be back to do it again with Tweed Guide soon. I'd thoroughly recommend them.

    What a fantastic snorkelling trip off of Stingray (St Abbs Charters). The boat ride was stunning with amazing views of the coast, the water was crystal clear with lots to see and the cup of tea and chocolate biscuit on return to the boat were gratefully demolished! B&B is also excellent- thank you so much Sally and Danny for making this such a special trip. We will be back!

    After heavy rain the previous evening the fishing was not at its best
    Give the skipper his due he tried very hard to find fish ..which he did on numerous occasions .eventually several mackerel and quite a few pollack we’re caught on what was in general a nice days fishing on a boat which gave each fisherman plenty of room
    plus skipper was always on hand to help with landing fish
    All in all a nice days fishing
    If you go fishing the mindset should be “If I catch fish that’s a bonus”
    Would definitely book again when in Eyemouth

    I visited this location knowing that the sailing centre is no longer being operated by Borders Council. 8/8/20. For the foreseeable future there is no new management group to take over. It was a beautiful day and small number of people were picnicking, boating and swimming.

    Whiteadder Reservoir is a fresh water source for East Lothian and the "no swimming notices" are totally inadequate in an unmanned location.

    There is no mobile phone reception and the emergency phone has probably not been checked.
