Nowadays the transport connections make it popular for commuters to Edinburgh, with Waverley station just a twenty-minute train ride away.

The station is located south of the town centre and it is a five-minute walk from High Street, where you'll find shops, restaurants and a museum dedicated to the explorer and conservationist John Muir, who was born in Dunbar.
