Eyemouth has provided safe shelter for boats since at least the Medieval ages - there is evidence of a Harbour Master as far back as 1214.

What was once a traditional fishing village (located off the east coast of Scotland) has evolved and grown into a larger working port managed by Eyemouth Harbour Trust (EHT). Today Eyemouth is home to a commercial fishing fleet and leisure craft.

We are keen to get accurate feedback from the diving community to continue to facilitate shore diving in Eyemouth. EHT

EHT are making plans to secure the future of the harbour. The hope is that Eyemouth Harbour will serve the offshore wind farm industry, hence EHT needs to change the road access to the popular dive sites ‘Green Ends Gully’ and ‘Nestends’. However they wish to do this in a considered manner for all users, including the scuba diving community.

A spokesman from Eyemouth Harbour Trust stated "We understand that Eyemouth is a popular dive destination for divers because it offers excellent access to the shoreline and local clear waters. We are therefore keen to get accurate honest feedback from the diving community to enable EHT to continue to facilitate shore dive from Eyemouth. If you shore dive the Gullys, please take two minutes to fill in ."
