Derek Struthers, owner of The Old Smugglers Inn, told ITV News about how the Solway Coast's smuggling history has been a real boost to his business.
"We believe a couple of hundred years ago that smugglers would have sat here, drinking their ale and hiding their brandy, so we get quite good fun with the tourists...
"A lot of them come in, in the first instance for just a quick pint, but then when they get to see the pub and the stuff around they start asking questions and it gets quite in depth sometimes and they leave knowing a great lot more than they came in knowing."
