Built in 1753 by local smuggler John Nisbet, and of John Adam design, the architecture of Gunsgreen House includes secret hiding places where smuggled goods were kept.
Visit Gunsgreen and see the amazing ‘tea chute’- the only one of its kind, where smuggled tea was hidden from prying eyes. Kids love Gunsgreen, dressing as smugglers they can complete the smuggling and rat trails, becoming a certified smuggler.
For those who just can’t stay away, Gunsgreen House provides stunning self catering accommodation in the form of ‘The Merchant’s House’ sleeping 11, and ‘Nisbet’s Tower’ sleeping 2. Stay right here on the harbour-side in Eyemouth, on the stunning East Berwickshire coastline of the Scottish Borders. We guarantee you won’t find anywhere else like it.
