If history and archeology peak your interest then East Lothian offers a fascinating variety of attractions, all accessible from Dunbar. Beautiful walks take visitors past the ruins of stunning cliff top castles including Tantallon, Fast Castles and the 2nd century Edin’s Hall Broch. Hailes, Innerwick, Barns and Tower Castles are also within easy reach. Being so close to the English border means that this land was once battle-torn from centuries long strife and there are atmospheric battle grounds just outside the town. Other local sites to visit include the Doon Hill Dark Age Settlement, Dunglass Collegiate Church, Preston Mill and for the more curious Yester’s Goblin Ha’ is fascinating. East Lothian Archaeology & Local History Fortnight takes place in September each year.
