St Abbs Visitor Centre Website HERE
Just wanted to let you all know about the St Abbs Visitors Centre at the top of the hill. If you haven't been in it yet, then shame on you! (yes, shame on me as well because I only went in for the first time today).
|Welcome! Come on in!|
|Celebrating the past|
Inside you'll find a very bright and airy space with plenty of displays and facts about St Abbs, the people and it's history.
|Informative and interesting. You can have fun and learn at the same time!|
If Dawn isn't sitting at the front entrance desk, she'll probably be talking to one of the visitors and no doubt will soon greet you with a hello and will immediately put you at ease if you have never met her before.
|Some of the local history on display|
As the wife of Captain O'Callaghan (he of Pathfinder andHawaiian shirt fame), Dawn has a wealth of knowledge and stories to tell all about the area, the history and the inner workings of the harbour. If she doesn't know it then it's probably no worth knowing about!
There is a series of talks, events, etc. organised over the next few weeks/months, so if you want to know more, I strongly suggest getting in touch with them to see what's happening. If you haven't already seen it, I've put a link to their website at the top.
|Fantastic vantage point overlooking Seagull Rock, all the way out to Black Carr|
The place has long been a mecca for diving in the UK for many, many years and it's fantastic to have a dedicated centre about the harbour and village to inform and delight vistiors.
|Displaying the bounty of the sea|
It'll be a sad day when the boats don't run any more......
Just remember to stop by the visitors centre any time your in the area, even if it's just to say hello and if you can spare it, leave a little donation in the box on your way out.
