A nice day here in Dunbar, so I took my camera out for a walk this morning. The first one shows the Cromwell Harbour, built after Cromwell’s incursion into Scotland, when he landed here and defeated the Scottish royalists at the 2nd Battle of Dunbar (the first was a 14th century affray outside Black Agnes’ pub).
This shows all three Dunbar harbours – the Cromwell in the foreground, the Broadhaven (the oldest) in the middle, and the Victoria Harbour seen through the raised bridge, which allows fishing boats to shelter in the inner harbour in stormy weather. The open sea is to the right of the stump of Dunbar Castle, whose stones were used to build the Cromwell Harbour, and many of the older houses and walls in the town. It was a very large castle.
