St Abbs is a small fishing village on the southeastern coast of Scotland, within the Coldingham parish of Scottish Borders.

The village was originally known as Coldingham Shore, the name St Abbs being adopted in the 1890s. The new name was derived from St Abb’s Head, a rocky promontory located to the north of the village, itself named after the 7th-century saint Æbbe of Coldingham.
