Cove

Cove Accommodation inc hotels, self catering holiday cottages and bed and breakfastsCove is an appropriately named fishing village, where steep steps carved into the cliffs lead down to sheltered harbour.

The community of Cove, initially "Quhyte Cove" or White Cove, later to be called simply Cove, is centred around the planned hamlet built, from the 19th century onwards, by the Halls of Dunglass, for tenant fisher-folk, who used what was a natural harbour.

The hamlet they created is a good example of a "heugh-held" or cliff-top settlement and overlooks Lidster's Bay, an SSSI containing rare fossilised flowers and plants from the carboniferous period.
