Though its name maybe a bit frightening or odd to many people, the town of Eyemouth is in fact a very lovely and beautiful town that rests in the historically wondrous county known as the Scottish Borders. Like many towns in the Borders, Eyemouth is very close to the River Tweed. This glorious River is important to both Scotland and England and has been so for countless centuries. A vast amount of history has occurred on either side of this winding body of water and any city near it has reaped the benefits of its live-giving powers but has also been subject to skirmishes and battles over its highly desired bounty. Eyemouth is no exception to this rule and, not surprisingly, it too has a rich and colourful history.

Eyemouth earned its name because it is at the mouth of a bay known as the Eye Water. There are many gorgeous harbours and cliffs in the area because of the Berwickshire coastline and by all accounts Eyemouth has a geography that sets itself apart from nearly every other town in the area. Naturally, Eyemouth grew up as a fishing village thanks to the high amount of great commercial species in the water but don't think for a second that this means that Eyemouth has a quiet, quaint, peaceful past. On the contrary, Eyemouth has been subject to some of the worst violence in history. It is to the towns credit, though, that it has never become cynical or distrustful throughout all of these events.

In the centre of the market of Eyemouth one can see a beautiful bronze statue of the hero of the town: William Spears. Spears lived from 1812 to 1885 and in that time he led a revolt against the unfair practices of the Church of Scotland. In those days fishing was incredibly important to the country's livelihood and the Church knowingly levied incredibly high taxes on the fish so that it could reap the benefits of the hard work done by the fishermen. It was Spears who put his life on the line to end this practice and he withstood threats and violence in order to keep his brothers from having all of their money filched from them. These were no doubt tough times and they were exacerbated when, in 1881, an incredibly powerful storm swept across Eyemouth and destroyed over twenty boats that were working in the sea at the time. Almost one hundred and fifty men lost their lives in this horrific squall and to this day it is referred to as the Eyemouth Disaster. The entire industry was nearly lost that day but it is a credit to the strength and bravery of the town that it still exists to this day. This is the nature of Eyemouth and thus the town is truly deserving of every compliment it has ever received. If you are spending your holiday in Scotland it is highly recommended that you pay a visit to this coastal slice of heaven in the Scottish Borders.
