Heading south: Eyemouth and Seahouses

28 Oct: We’re heading down the east coast towards York – a stop or two on the way would be good, and would take us off the main roads for a while. Eyemouth isn’t pretty – it’s a working harbour, a fishing port. The Craster kippers and the hot-smoked salmon were excellent… An unlikely-looking black-tarred vessel on the quayside turned out to be Brunel’s “Bertha” – dating from 1844, she is the oldest operational steam-powered vessel in Britain (possibly the world), apparently.
Seahouses (we’re back in England now) provided a super little lunch break – we nearly chose the wrong pub; the Olde Ship’s crab sandwiches were thick and fresh, just what was required to keep us going for the remainder of the journey.

  1. I found your writing after posting today about walking in Northumberland ….. We had an excellent fish and chips supper one evening in Seahouses after walking the St. Cuthbert’s Way. In fact I’d had fish and chips there on another visit almost exactly a year ago, so it is becoming a bit of a habit 🙂 Absolutely loving your photographs…… Thank you
