Burnmouth is a hamlet facing the North Sea in what was Berwickshire, Scotland. It is in the parish of Ayton. This area is now part of the unitary authority called the Scottish Borders.

Burnmouth lies at the foot of cliffs 6 miles (10 km) northwest of Berwick upon Tweed. A harbour was built in 1830 and a railway station opened at the top of the cliffs in 1846, which operated until 1962. The settlement now comprises fishermen's houses and holiday cottages.
