King's Mount, Eyemouth Fort (remains)
King's Mount, Eyemouth Fort (remains)
"On a small promontory immediately north-west of Eyemouth are distinctly traceable the remains of an extensive fortification, constructed by the English Army under the command of the Duke of Somerset. It was first erected by the Duke of Somerset in his famous expedition against Scotland in 1547, and was shortly after demolished in terms of a treaty concluded at Boulogne between France and England, 24th March 1550. A few years after, Regent Mary, wishing to involve Scotland in the war then raging between France and England, ordered D'Oysel, her General, to rebuild these Fortifications. Who, though much harassed by the Garrison of Berwick, succeeded in again putting the place into a state of defence. At the subsequent peace, however, it was a second time demolished, and the next Reign which witnessed the Union of the Kingdoms deprived it of its importance and prevented its re-erection."
