Dunbar is a coastal town in East Lothian on the south-east coast of Scotland, approximately 30 miles east of Edinburgh and 30 miles from the English border north of Berwick-upon-Tweed. Dunbar is a former royal burgh, and gave its name to an ecclesiastical and civil parish. The parish extends around 7 1⁄2 miles east to west and is 3 1⁄2 miles deep at greatest extent, or 11 1⁄4 square miles, and contains the villages of West Barns, Belhaven, East Barns and several hamlets and farms. Its strategic location gave rise to a history full of incident and strife; but Dunbar has become a quiet dormitory town popular with workers in nearby Edinburgh, who find it an affordable alternative to the capital itself. Until the 1960s, the population of the town was little more than 3,500.
