It will soon be the anniversary of the Great Fishing Disaster – Black Friday. It is 137 years since the fishing boats from the Berwickshire coast went out to sea on 14th October 1881. Many did not return. We have a presentation by Eyemouth High School pupils and the electric voice theatre which tells the story of the storm in song and music, interpreted from the meteorological data of that day.


We now have a great range in our gift shop.  Lots of toys and games to keep the children and adults occupied!  Cards and postcards, books, keyrings, nautical gifts, paperweights and much, much more!  Come in and have look.  Perfect for presents!
