Overview

  • Campsites next to or within walking distance of a beach

    Top site for beaches

On Scotland's sunshine coast, to the east of the country's capital, Edinburgh.

Our peaceful Dunbar Club campsite is just a stone’s throw from the popular East Lothian seaside town of the same name and adjacent to Whitesands Bay - a long stretch of sandy surfing beach.

Spectacular landscapes surround the campsite, ensuring wherever you are pitched you have a stunning view. Seaward the impressive views extend over the Firth of Forth and Bass Rock – temporary nesting spot for 150,000 seabirds during peak season.

The campsite is well laid out and spacious with 90 pitches, some of which are hardstands. Modern facilities, including a wetsuit shower are available.

Dunbar, three miles from the campsite, offers shops, places to eat and more beaches. East beach, minutes from the town centre is great for bathing, paddle boarding and sea kayaking.

Inland other attractions include East Links Family Park with animals and a narrow gauge railway; the Museum of Flight at East Fortune and the Scottish Seabird Centre in North Berwick, where you can see puffins, seal pups and dolphins.

Worth Noting

Most pitches have sea views and there is a large picnic area overlooking the coast. There is a large Sunday market/car boot sale every week at East Fortune ten miles from the site.

WiFi

Eat Local

Belhaven Fruit Farm is four miles from site and Dunbar High Street has an organic greengrocer and a good butcher selling locally reared meat.

Was a lovely site with plenty of wildlife.

This review is for Dunbar

Was a lovely site with plenty of wildlife. Had a problem with the facilities on the Saturday morning as the site was I quite busy and a few of the cubicles had been closed so it was easier for cleaning. Lots of visitor attractions near by.

This is a great site. I will visit again if I don't need a Passport.

This review is for Dunbar

This is a great site. I will visit again if I don't need a Passport. lol! I had an incident while here when a Car Driver spun his wheels on the path and put a stone strait through the window section of my brand new awning. The site staff were brilliant! The driver of the Car paid full repair cost's and the staff on site searched for a place to get the awning repaired. The awning is being delivered back to me tomorrow. ( 18/09/14 ). There are beautiful views from all the pitches and the sunsets are to die for. Just down the road is a fabulous beach with easy walks along the shore. An easy Train ride into Edinburgh gets you strait to Princess Street and a drive into North Berwick is well worth it and reminds me of St Ives in Cornwall only with a Scottish twist. There is a great Fish and Chip shop in Dunbar and an Asda plus others. I found out that the Club move's staff around most seasons which I do not think is maybe a good thing as you get to know them and they become friends.
