Not far from Cockburnspath is the tiny hamlet of Cove. From here wooden steps lead to a track descending towards sea level at the head of a steep grassy headland. The track leads to one of the hidden gems of south east Scotland, Cove Harbour.
These days Cove Harbour remains in use by a few small fishing vessels that set creels (pots) for crabs and lobsters. All of the buildings associated with the harbour are listed and it is no surprise to find that such a unique spot has been used by more than one film maker looking for somewhere so little touched by the 20th Century, still less the 21st.
