It might have been based on dark deeds undercover of night in the past, but Eyemouth’s recent Smugglers Trail Extravaganza enjoyed huge success in the blazing sunshine this week.
Put on to celebrate the launch of the Smugglers’ Trail at Gunsgreen House, the event saw nearly 1,000 people visit the seaside town to enjoy a variety of food stalls, and be entertained with displays of birds of prey, as well as a performance from the Lynella School of Highland Dancers and live music.
Organiser Jenna Shields, assistant manager at Gunsgreen House, was impressed with the turnout.
“It proved very popular,” she said.
“Luckily, we were able to get funding for the stalls and so on, and so many people turned up that in the end we could have gone on into the evening!
“It really was a huge success.”
