Harbourside apartment with expansive sea views from almost every window
This 5-bedroom duplex penthouse apartment is in Dunbar, a historic town on the coast in East Lothian, the sunniest and driest place in Scotland, and it's only 25 minutes by train to Edinburgh, the capital city.
From almost any window, you can look out at the sea, at historic Dunbar Castle, the active harbour and Bass Rock beyond. You can watch the fishermen unload their catches of prawns and lobsters, and see if the resident seals are frolicking in the harbour.
At the end of the day, you can simply relax in the living space, with all its home comforts, and look out at the sunset and the wild expanse of the ocean beyond, perhaps with a glass of wine in hand.
It's a penthouse duplex at the top of a converted old industrial building right on the harbour, and is a vast space which is flooded with light.
It is light and airy, with 5 bedrooms (one with a king-sized bed, one with a standard double, one with a small double, and two with 2 single beds), 3 bathrooms (2 with both bath and shower, one with just a shower), 2 sitting rooms (one a family/TV room, the other the massive main living/dining area), and a private roof terrace for alfresco dining, equipped with a table and plenty of chairs, as well as a barbecue.
There is also a yoga room for those who like to do their downward dogs and sun salutations.
We have newly furnished the apartment with simple, natural materials, and have decorated it in clean light colours - there is a lot of wood and a lot of white in evidence.
It's equipped with all mod cons, of course, including satellite TV, but its real uniqueness is its stunning views combined with its central location in Dunbar, on Scotland's East Lothian "Golf Coast". It's a truly wonderful situation, harbour-side, looking out at the ever-changing sea, but only 5 minutes' walk to the High Street, a mile to the nearest championship golf course*, and only 10 minutes walk to the railway station, from where you can reach the capital city of Edinburgh in under half an hour.
*Dunbar is on the East Lothian "Golf Coast" and has 20 golf courses within 30 minutes' drive, including championship courses such as Dunbar, Muirfield, and Gullane, to name but three.

About Belinda & Graham
Originally from the south coast of England, I have lived in Scotland for over 20 years. My partner Graham and I love the great outdoors, sport in general, golf and tennis in particular. Now that our 5 children are starting to spread their wings, we are travelling more, and enjoying food and wine (as well as sport) across the world.
Belinda & Graham purchased this Apartment in 2017
Why Belinda & Graham chose Dunbar
We fell in love with this place : its spaciousness and to-die-for views of the harbour and the sea beyond it, make us relax the moment we walk into the main living space. As keen golfers, the dry micro-climate of "Sunny Dunny" and its wonderful links golf course, and easy access to the whole "Golf Coast" of beautiful East Lothian are also major attractions for us.
What makes this Apartment unique
It's a lovely spacious property looking out to the ever-changing sea, big enough for all our family to gather on occasions, but also only a 5 minute walk to the centre of historic Dunbar; and just a mile to one of our favourite golf courses and easily accessible to many other great golf courses.

Had the most wonderful family celebration (ages 1 - 70) in this beautiful house.
Shared a wonderful 4 days with family in this very special house to celebrate 2 special birthdays. Adults and children enjoyed the space, the luxury accommodation and particularly the spectacular views. We have enjoyed several family holidays in self catering houses both here and abroad, but not one has been as generously stocked as this beauty in Dunbar, everything you could possibly need from toiletries to tea and coffee!!. We will cherish our time spent here and hopefully return to make more wonderful memories.
Thank you for your lovely comments - we're so glad that you had a good time, and we hope that you are able to return for another family celebration before too long.
