Eyemouth

A medium sized fishing village and our last stop in Scotland (the England Scotland border being just south of here).  A very sad history for the town remembered by a moving bronze statue along the foreshore which depicts the tragedy in the town when they lost many fishing boats and a total of 189 men/boys in a wild storm just off shore within sight of the harbour back in 1881.  It left behind 78 widows and 182 fatherless children in the town.
