Exploring East Lothian for the School Holidays

Coasts to castles, forests and hills, we really do have everything for the family on our doorstep. Located in Dunbar, the Dolphin Inn is the perfect base for your adventure on Scotland’s east coast.

Whether it’s a visit to East Links Family park, a stroll along Belhaven Beach or a Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) session at Dunbar’s surf school Coast to Coast, there really is a huge amount on offer. For an extensive list of local activities that you can do with the family from land, sea (and air), visit the 60 Things Dunbar Website below.

The Dolphin Inn has has bright, airy rooms with a retro vintage vibe – a great base for active outdoor holidays in stunning East Lothian coast and countryside. Our rooms offer ideal accommodation for families, groups, couples and individuals – beds from £20 per night. Whole hostel hire also available, 27 beds in total. We could wax lyrical about the hostel, but we think one of our young visitors summed it up perfectly;

‘Our stay was fantastic! I stayed for one night with my Mum and brother in the largest room. There were three bunk beds. My brother chose one, I chose one and mum had the double bed. It was easy to go to the toilet because it was right next to us and we had our own door. In the reception area there was a television that had been made into a fish tank. We never saw the fish but we know they were there. There was a dining room with a television that’s easy to use. I love tv! Anyway there where two ways to the kitchen, one at the back of the room and one at the front. There was lots of free food and a fridge to store our milk. Lisa was lovely and gave us a tour around the hostel and the courtyard area. The dining room had a good selection of breakfasts and coffee and milk and stuff. Back out to reception there is a map on the wall which is really helpful for finding your way around.
Probably the best place I’ve ever stayed!!!!’
