Eyemouth, Scottish Borders, Homepage

Eyemouth is located on the East Coast of Scotland, not far from the Border with England. It is two miles east of the main north-south A1 road and just 8 miles north of Berwick-upon-Tweed. It has a population of around 3,500 people.
The town's name comes from its location at the mouth of the Eye Water. The Berwickshire coastline consists of high cliffs over deep clear water, with sandy coves and picturesque harbours. Eyemouth is a working fishing port and fishing boats can be seen most days bringing their catch into the harbour.

Notable buildings in the town include Gunsgreen House (offering Self Catering Eyemouth event hire, making it one of the best Scottish wedding venues) and a cemetery watch house built to stand guard against the body snatchers! Many of the features of a traditional fishing village are preserved in the narrow streets and vennels - giving shelter from the sea and well suited to the smuggling tradition of old.
The coast around Eyemouth offers great opportunities for birdwatching, walking, fishing and diving. Accommodation includes several hotels, B&Bs, and a high-quality holiday park.
