Dramatically situated overlooking the sea and the picturesque harbour at Burnmouth this colourful cottage is packed with character and retains many original features. Built here around 1850 because of its amazing vantage point, as the name suggests, this was the home of the coastguard in years gone by. The nautical decor is enhanced by the seafaring paintings displayed on the walls, some of which have been painted by the owner, an accomplished artist. The "look out" on the front of the cottage has panoramic views of the ever changing seascape. It would be a relaxing place to take the weight off your feet in the evening and watch the passing fishing boats or perhaps in the winter months the waves crashing along the rugged coastline north towards St. Abb's. Burnmouth is one of the best Scottish Borders coastal locations just 6 miles north of Berwick upon Tweed.
