Enjoy East Lothian beach breaks at a Dunbar holiday letting

Beaches, farm parks, and the big city close at hand
Dunbar has several beaches close to the town, including East Beach, right in the middle of town. All beaches along this stretch of coast are perfect for sandcastles, kite-flying, or paddling in the waves. Belhaven Bay is one of the biggest – even on a busy afternoon, there's plenty of space for everyone. Kids will also love the attractions Edinburgh has to offer, and it's just 25 minutes by train from Dunbar.
Seabirds and history at Dunbar harbour
Just off the coast of East Lothian is the Bass Rock, one of the North Sea's most important breeding grounds for seabirds. The Scottish Seabird Centre, just along the coast at North Berwick, is well worth a visit at any time of year to learn about the types of birds that live here. Nothing can beat the experience of seeing thousands of kittiwakes, gannets, and puffins close up, so make sure to take a boat trip from Dunbar in summer months.
Also close to the harbour are the ruins of Dunbar Castle, which played an important part in the story of Mary Queen of Scots. Climb to the top for great views over the town and the Firth of Forth to Fife.
