EYEMOUTH, a police burgh of Berwickshire, Scotland. Pop. (19or) 2436. It is situated at the mouth of the Eye, 7z m N.N.W. of Berwick-on-Tweed by the North British railway via Burnmouth. Its public buildings are the town hall, library and masonic hall. The main industry is the fishing and allied trades. The harbour was enlarged in 1887, and the bay is easily accessible and affords good anchorage. Owing to the rugged character of the coast and its numerous ravines and caves the whole district was once infested with smugglers. The promontory of St Abb's Head is 3 M. to the N.W.
