Discover a House of Secrets
Uncover the mysterious history of Gunsgreen House for yourself.
Uncover the history of Gunsgreen House, where the luxurious manor house rooms bear a stark contrast to the hidden, dark chambers and cellars, specially adapted by the duplicitous John Nisbet, to accommodate his illegal deliveries, smuggled in by sea and hidden from prying eyes in the depths of Gunsgreen House.
The history continues through the ages of many local families who called Gunsgreen House home, before it was ultimately restored by the Gunsgreen House Trust.
The house now tells its own story as a museum; continued through various walks and smugglers trails, around the local area, from St. Abbs in the north to Berwick-upon-Tweed to the south.

“We booked a private tour of the Museum and were very glad we had done as the weather was atrocious! My five year old son loved the interactive activities and we all found out some interesting facts about Eyemouth and the smugglers! The staff were very friendly and helpful, too.”
