Lots to See and Do
The tower is ideally situated to explore Eyemouth and the East Berwickshire coast, including the stunning villages of Coldingham and St Abbs.
Eyemouth town centre is just a ten minute scenic walk across the harbour, where plenty local amenities are situated including a supermarket, post office and local gift shops. There are also plenty places to eat and drink, we recommend relaxing in Oblo Bar & Bistro with a delicious meal, or sampling award-winning local fish & chips and ice cream from Giacopazzi’s.
There are a number of nearby attractions, including Gunsgreen House itself (during the Summer Season 1st April - 31st October, guests benefit from 10% discount on entry to Gunsgreen House), Eyemouth Town Museum, Eyemouth Maritime Centre and a booth on the harbour-side where fish can be bought to feed the local seals- a favourite with children.
Other things to do include taking an exhilarating boat trip with Eyemouth Rib Trips, or practising your golfing skills at Eyemouth Golf Club (famed for its 6th hole across the sea, voted ‘Britain’s No.1 Most Extraordinary Golf Hole’).
For avid walkers, why not explore nearby St Abbs Head, a national nature reserve, or challenge yourself to complete ‘The Smugglers’ Trail’ along the Berwickshire Coastal Path from Burnmouth to Cove. Gunsgreen House is itself part of this trail.
