The historic, seaside town of Dunbar is situated to the east of Edinburgh on the southeast coast of Scotland. As well as the usual seaside town amenities, Dunbar's other attractions include a museum and gallery, large leisure pool, the John Muir's Birthplace Centre and a traditional music festival usually held in the last week in September.
The town is an ideal base if you are interested in golf as it is situated in Scotland's Golf Coast. Dunbar has two courses to choose from (one of championship standard) and there are courses located in nearby North Berwick, Gullane, Muirfield and Musselburgh. Also, the town and surrounding area is excellent for bird watching and rambling, with many routes to explore.
