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

This review is for Dunbar

Park is kept very clean & tidy. Toilets are immaculate & large family room is available. Washing machines are great for longer stays. The beach is an enjoyable walk away or few minutes drive & lovely for short visits or all day stays. Dunbar has a huge variety of shops; small local ones to large supermarkets. A very good & helpful health center; The harbour is interesting for a walk round; a golf course; & an amazing swimming pool. A large outdoor/indoor play area at a farm park on outskirts of town is worth a visit wjth children. Regular train services from town to further afield for something different.

This review is for Dunbar

Only negative was the wind! Wardens were fantastic. Feel campers and we weren't affected as they were should have a common room to retreat to in storm weather. Lovely area and great for East Lothian trail and visiting Edinburgh.
