The harbours are a brilliant place to visit with children. The ruins of Dunbar Castle lie at the entrance of the newer Victoria Harbour but don’t miss the old Cromwell Harbour, the two are connected by a lifting bridge. Children will delight in spotting the visiting seals, looking out for dolphins, inspecting the fleet of fishing boats and catching a glimpse of the Lifeboat when she visits. The recently redeveloped Battery theatre space offers great views across the Forth and it and the McArthur’s Store often hosts events. There is a coffee van and seafood on sale at the harbour and on Tuesday and Thursday evenings enjoy freshly cooked pizza from the Big Blue van.
