Historic Dunbar, which is surrounded by fantastic scenery, is a vibrant thriving town with a real sense of community and is renowned for its high sunshine record. There is a bustling high street with an excellent selection of independent and artisan shops, restaurants and galleries with the convenience of a large supermarket on the outskirts. The two colourful working harbours beneath the ruined castle are the hub of the town and the Harbour Trust is an active part of local life. The Dunbar Battery has recently been spectacularly restored to create a unique open-air venue with an amphitheatre and a coastal garden. There is also a leisure centre with a swimming pool and a newly opened platinum fitness centre, two golf courses, beautiful sandy beaches, spectacular cliff top walks and the John Muir Country Park.
The convenience of easy access to Edinburgh City Centre by train (25 minutes) or via a regular bus service and access to the A1 and City Bypass is easy and straightforward, which combined with accessibility to Newcastle and the South by train or car adds to the appeal of this sought-after town.
