Eyemouth is a small town and civil parish in Berwickshire, in the Scottish Borders area of Scotland. It is 3 km east of the main north-south A1 road and 13 km north of Berwick-upon-Tweed. It has a population of about 3,400 people.
The town's name comes from its location at the mouth of the Eye Water. A fishing port, Eyemouth holds a yearly Herring Queen Festival. Notable buildings in the town include Gunsgreen House and a cemetery watch-house built to stand guard against the Resurrectionists (body snatchers). Many of the features of a traditional fishing village are preserved in the narrow streets and 'vennels', giving shelter from the sea and well-suited to the smuggling tradition of old.
The bell will form part of Eyemouth Art Trail. It is in the making - encouraging people to look and through looking discover the beauty and mysteries of the town.
