Eyemouth


A very nice little fishing port. Still is the only commercial centre in the Borders for serious fish. When one walks around one can tell this is a business place whose business is fish. But that aside a nice place to visit, quaint houses, good harbour with live seals for entertainment (free!), and a good restaurant in Oblo. Across the harbour is the house of a well known smuggler which has been restored and shows how life was in the days of avoiding "the revenue". Also has a good museum of smuggling and fishing, but they charge £3.50 each.
