This beautiful five metre high steel bear sculpted by Scottish artist Andy Scott is a fitting tribute to John Muir, the American naturalist who was born in the town. The sculptor said, “I am delighted to have been commissioned to bring this large steel creation to Dunbar. I wanted to honour John Muir in an unusual and striking fashion. As he’s been commemorated in bronze in the town, I felt a sculpture celebrating one of America’s most dramatic creatures would be a fitting tribute to the great man”. For more information visit John Muir’s birthplace on the High Street or perhaps walk some (or all) of the John Muir Way which follows his footsteps to Helensburgh on the west coast.
