St Abbs is a quaint fishing village situated at the foot of the St Abbs Head Nature Reserve, and only five minutes from Coldingham Village. The village is centred around the bustling fishing harbour, with plentiful seaside pathways ripe for exploration. The village dates from around the early eighteen hundreds with amenities in the village including a local village shop, post office and café. Outdoor pursuits are plentiful in this area and include walking, bird watching, diving and fishing. Having been the backdrop to the filming of the Avengers movie ‘Avengers Endgame’ the village is now said to be twinned with fictional movie village ‘New Asgard’
