Gunsgreen House

Gunsgreen House

Once described as a “Splendid Palace” built by a smuggler, Gunsgreen House enjoys a prominent position overlooking Eyemouth.
Gunsgreen House is a visitor attraction and also offers luxury self catering Eyemouth.
Gunsgreen was designed by James Adam around 1755, and formed the centre of a lucrative 18th Century smuggling operation.
Eyemouth was a particular centre for smugglers, being the closest Scottish port to the continent, and throughout the town there were hidden stores and secret passages, and it was said that more of Eyemouth existed below the ground than above it.
Gunsgreen House was alleged to have its roofspace full of illicit tea, and hiding places built into the walls between certain rooms and a fireplace which swung open revealing a secret compartment.
