While Glasgow may have its Parks, Museums and History, for so many that called Glasgow their home city, there is still a need to get out of the city every once in a while.
Whether that is for a day trip, a long weekend or even a longer break; Dunbar is the perfect destination.

Can I do everything in a day?
While Dunbar makes a great place to visit with so many things to do in the weekend, some of the things we have listed can be enjoyed over a longer stay. So whether you are looking at day trips, long weekend get aways or even as part of a School Holiday place to go in East Lothian, Dunbar has you covered.
Why should I visit Dunbar from Glasgow rather than go to the West Coast?
Because in Dunbar there is so many things to do. If you have never been, you won’t regret trying it out. The weather can be better and Dunbar has one of the best beaches in all of Scotland. If you are a fan of Surfing, it has some of the best waves in Scotland and if you are a fan of long walks and Castles then Dunbar has you covered.
Speaking of long walks, if you don’t fancy driving, taking the train or going by bus, you can walk from Glasgow to Dunbar as part of the John Muir Way. One of Scotland’s Great Trails, the John Muir Way offers walkers and cyclists a unique journey through Scotland’s landscapes, history and heritage. Going coast to coast in 134 miles, it links Helensburgh in the west with Dunbar in the east. The route symbolically passes through Scotland’s own first national park and offers a chance to connect with nature – just as Muir did here as a boy – taking advantage of the green spaces, beaches and woodlands that link our coasts, villages, and even the capital city.
What about things to do with the kids?
Ahh the age old question. The weekend is approaching, the weather in Glasgow is looking average but on the East Coast, it is looking promising. You want to take the kids out and about to do something. But where should you go? What should you do? In and around Dunbar, there are loads of things to do with the kids.
