A kittiwake colony
In spring and summer the camera at Dunbar Harbour brings wonderful live pictures of the famous kittiwake colony on the ruins of the historic Dunbar Castle. This colony is the most accessible in Britain with more than 600 pairs of kittiwakes nesting. However, these graceful seabirds have suffered in recent years with numbers decreasing by 50% around Scotland.
The harbour is also home to one of the largest lifeboat stations in the area and, if you're lucky, you may also see Sammy the resident friendly seal who spends his time swimming around the harbour hoping for a fish supper from the fishermen.
Check out our Dunbar Harbour webcam. If you like what you see, come and control the live action yourself from our Discovery Centre. Book online!
Our Bass Landing trips leave from Dunbar Harbour - the fantastic Fisher Lassie, a working trawler owned by Gordon Easingwood, takes small groups onto the Bass Rock between March and October. It’s a magical experience for photographers and nature enthusiasts.
