STEEPED IN LOCAL HISTORY
Eyemouth, like many of the Border towns has its story to tell of warring English and Scots, with sea battles of the time still evident in the fortified remains at Fort Point.
The rugged east coast shores also assisted in the 18th and 19th century smuggling activity in Eyemouth – Gunsgreen House tells the tale with artefacts and interactive displays.
Eyemouth is also known for the fishing disaster of 1881, when the lives of 189 local fisherman were lost at sea during a ferocious storm. Follow the story of Black Friday at the town’s museum.
