Gunsgreen House Facilities

New facilities for visiting yachtsmen and boat owners are now available in Gunsgreen House. These modern facilities, along with the new deep water harbour basin which is accessible at all stages of the tide, is making Eyemouth a welcome haven for many yachtsmen sailing along the coast.

Gunsgreen House is an imposing Georgian building on the south side of Eyemouth harbour. The yachtsmens facilities are part of the first phase of a redevelopment programme by Gunsgreen House Trust. Money to finance this stage has come from the EU, Scottish Enterprise Borders, Scottish Borders Council and several smaller trusts.

Showers and toilets have been installed in part of the basement. The former kitchen now contains a sink unit, a washing machine, a tumble dryer and a small freezer. There is also an area where people can sit and wait, if there is a queue for the showers. The whole space has been attractively decorated and furnished.

Yachtsmen will be offered the use of these facilities for a reasonable charge when they pay their harbour dues. Entry to the basement facilities is by a coded security system, and the entrance is located at the rear of the House, close by the South-west corner.
