Eyemouth Museum
The life of fisher families was hard with the wives collecting mussels, baiting the lines, mending the nets and keeping house while the men went to sea. Even the children were involved before and after school.
In the summer, the young women travelled with the fleet gutting, salting and packing the herring in to barrels, from as far north as Lerwick to Great Yarmouth in the south. Come and learn more and see the realistic fisherman's living quarters as it was over a hundred years ago.
