Eyemouth is a small fishing town on the south east coast of Scotland. It is situated to the East of Berwickshire, approximately 8 miles north west of Berwick-upon-Tweed, 49 miles to the east of Edinburgh. The settlement has a population of 3,540 according to the National Records of Scotland 2019 Mid-Year estimates, an increase of around 2% over the population recorded at the 2001 census (3,470), a small decrease on the population recorded at the 2011 census (3,550).
There are East Coast Mainline Railway Stations at Berwick-upon-Tweed and Dunbar and plans afoot for re-establishment of the station at the nearby town of Reston.

This has modernised facilities for the local fishing industry and provided a boost to the areas tourism sector. In addition, the town benefitted from a Shop Front Improvement Grant Scheme in the autumn of 2019 and a grant of 100,000 to support the Eyemouth Harbour Trust project to develop a new ice-making facility at the harbour to support local fishing fleets.
