Burnmouth Community Council
Burnmouth is a small fishing village located adjacent to the A1 road. It is also the first village in Scotland after crossing the border with England. Burnmouth is located in the Parish of Ayton.
Burnmouth lies at the point where a burn slices through the high cliffs lining this coast en route to the sea. There may have been a mill here in the Middle Ages, but little else until a fishing harbour was built in the 1830s, later extended in 1879 and 1959. The East Coast Main Line railway passes along the top of the cliff here, and Burnmouth had a railway station from 1846 to 1962.
