Eyemouth

[Eyemouth]

Eyemouth is a quiet, attractive, east coast village a few miles north of the English border, set astride the Eye Water. It has a working harbour (often with friendly seals) and new residential developments but also a thriving tourist trade - though the amusement arcades are kept at arm's length from the more attractive parts of town. The central museum might be a good choice on a rainy day, as is Gunsgreen House across the river. This resplendent mansion was built in 1753 for the local John Nisbet: successful merchant by day, notorious smuggler by night.
