Smallest harbour

Seacliff Harbour - a small hole in massive rocks

Seacliff Harbour, North Berwick, Scotland, August 2020

Seacliff is the smallest harbour in the UK, measuring just 3 metres in width. It was cut out of the red sandstone in 1890, using a steam engine and compressed air.

    • Glad you like it, Arnaud. I’ve just been googling for the smallest in France and it came up with Port Racine. I’m not sure it really is the smallest but it has to be one of the most beautiful! Added to my list 🙂


  1. They must really wanted a harbor, to cut it out of stone! Yet, I understand that the Scotts are really very emotionally determined people. Neat view though:) Thanks for braving your life to get some these views for us! Mine was barely seen with the eye.


    • It is a private estate and it was built by the owner of the time.
      I don’t know if he built it for personal use or to aid the local area.

      The links you have given don’t work, but I’ve added one that does in the comment above.


    • It’s a wonderful spot that I plan to return to. I only found it because I was trying to get views of Tantallon Castle which was closed due to lockdown. This harbour and beach have lovely views of both the castle and Bass Rock


        • You go juts past Tantallon (from North Berwick) then take an unsuspecting path on the left, and if in a car you have to pay to go down a long even more unsuspecting track. Eventually you emerge in a car park just above the beach. Do add it to your things-to-do-outside-EU list 🙂
