A quick look at the map showed a lighthouse, some rocky looking coastal scenery and a small harbour in St. Abbs.
What eventually made up my mind for me was that it was just over the border in Scotland.
It meant that instead of sneaking around to find a quiet place to camp, under the Scottish outdoor access code I would be able to camp freely, providing it was done responsibly of course.
Itís so sad that England and Wales do not have legislation like this as it means that I have to travel to Scotland or Scandinavia to wild camp and really enjoy the outdoors as it should be experienced.
The last time I pitched on a commercial campsite in the Lake District I had my tent robbed and my gear trashed, I wonít be doing that again in a hurry.
The key to wilderness camping of course is always to leave no trace of your camp behind and in many places I actually end up cleaning up rubbish left by other people before I leave.
