The Herald - Scotland's Homes - - News -

Dunbar is a pretty coastal town in East Loth­ian, fa­mous for be­ing the birth­place of world-renowned con­ser­va­tion­ist John Muir, and an in­creas­ingly de­sir­able res­i­den­tial hotspot for fam­i­lies, down­siz­ers and com­muters. Dunbar was once a ma­jor her­ring and whal­ing port and its old­est har­bour (there are three) dates back to 1710. Now peo­ple search­ing for an idyl­lic, sea­side home are drawn to its lovely beaches, and busy, bustling high street with cafés and shops. It’s also around a 25-minute train jour­ney Dun­das Es­tates has just launched two new five-bed de­tached house­types, in­spired by the sea­side, at its Kings Court devel­op­ment on Sta­tion Road. It’s a small, pri­vate devel­op­ment of just 20 homes built within a for­mer walled garden.
