  1. Whats your connection to St Abbs? In the 80s and 90s I regularly visited St Abbs to go diving loved the place. I suspect it has changed a lot since then.

    I came here because of your canalside property tweets.

  2. My stepdaughter and her family live nearby, and we have fallen in love with St Abbs when visiting her. We hope to live there permanently one day soon.
