Day 172 : Coldingham – Berwick-on-Tweed

Today starts as a bright cold day as I get the early bus out to Coldingham. The village grew around an Abbey that was built and was later destroyed by fire. Later on a Benedictine Priory was built of which you can still see some remains.

Day 171 : Dunbar – Coldingham

Today the weather was fantastic for this time of the year, it was warm enough for tea-shirts. Dunbar was an interesting town with a natural harbour protected by some outcrops of rock. Dunbar seems to be the midway point between Edinburgh and the border at Berwick-upon-Tweed.
