The way-marked Coastal Path (and part of the Southern Upland Way)
is a level, easy path along the cliff top, with great views of Carboniferous
sedimentary rocks and the Old Red Sandstone exposed on the shore.
The path meets a minor road and descends to the entrance to the
Pease Bay Caravan Site. From there, across a ford, the road climbs
steeply, and a set of steps to the left of the road takes you back
to the cliff top for a short distance before you join the minor
road which leads to Drysdales
vegetable processing site, located in the Old Cambus Quarry. Follow
this road to a parking area on the left about 100m before the entrance
to the Drysdales site.
there by road
From the A1 south of Cockburnspath take the A1107 towards
Coldingham. After 1km this goes over a narrow (single track) stone bridge over
Pease Dean. 400m past the bridge, turn left (signposted Pease Bay). After another
400m ignore the second sign for Pease Bay and keep straight on (past the sign
for the Drysdales vegetable processing site). The narrow road winds through a
shallow valley, look out for the parking area on the left about 100m before the
entrance to the Drysdales site.
There are toilets on the A1 road, just north of the Cockburnspath
roundabout (heading north).
Pease Bay caravan site has a bar and a small shop.
