“A fine little town”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

A quick visit here on our walk along the John Muir Way from North Berwick to Cockburnspath. The harbour is fantastic and a really interesting place to visit. The High Street is a little uninspiring. The Basewell Hotel is good.

“Unspoilt”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Love the fact that walking down Dunbar High Street in early August, if we saw 20 people, it was crowded! The harbour is amazing, views, atmosphere and 2 resident seals who are fun to spot. We saw them every day, friends who have been never saw them!

“FADED GLORY”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Was Once a very Busy Holiday resort,but all this gradually faded from the 1970's Onwards.Now signs of regeneration,though not many Tourists have come back yet,so much quieter than North Berwick.The 2x Dunbar FREE Museums,The Coffee Shop,The Harbour & a stroll down the main Street all worth seeing,as is probably the 2 mile coastal walk.Train Station very central & cheap quick journey to & from Edinburgh Waverley (22 minutes & approx £10 return).The small new trading estate with ASDA & Pine Marten Pub also worth a visit.

“Great day out”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Kids love the leisure pool here, thought it was a brilliant idea by East Lothian council to offer free child swims all through school summer holidays.
Good poolside cafe, nice walks on the beaches and around the ancient harbour.
Good gift shops on High Street and a fab coffee shop when in need of a caffeine fix in GRAZE, choose Sunny Dunny for a family day out.....

“Shortbreak by train”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

We loved Dunbar, the beaches are really interesting, the rock pooling was a highlight for us all!
Easily accessible by train from York, we will go again.
The harbour and castle are well worth exploring and the town has some lovely cafes and pubs.
The only reason Dunbar doesn't get a 5* is the dog pooh!! They really need to clean it up and be much more proactive about enforcing the by law.
