Localities 1–5 represent a good half-day and Localities 6–7 a full-day excursion. Berwick on the north side of the River Tweed estuary and Tweedmouth–Spittal on the south both have easy parking, and full facilities are available at all but Cocklawburn Reach (Locality 7). All the localities are on the coast and require low to mid tide. The rocky foreshore can be slippery; wellingtons and hard hats are recommended.
