Dunbar station opened in 1846, and the railway helped the town develop as a seaside resort in the 19th century. Nowadays the transport connections make it popular for commuters to Edinburgh, with Waverley station just a twenty-minute train ride away. Other services to Dunbar include cross-country trains from Dundee, Glasgow and Aberdeen in Scotland, and Penzance, Plymouth and London King's Cross in England. 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. Walk north from the High Street and you will come to the harbour, and the starting point of the John Muir Way coastal path. About a mile to the west of the town is the village of Belhaven, home to the historic brewery of the same name.
