In Dunbar they were welcomed in the Council Chamber by Pippa Swan, chair of the community council and by Stephen Bunyan who has joined them on four previous occasions and is an honorary member.

Stephen gave a short address outlining the importance of the earldom, the earls, the castle and the Burgh in Scottish history. The group then split with some visiting the harbour to see it and part of the castle led by Pippa and Gordon Easingwood.

The remainder were given an illustrated talk by Alasdair Swan on the Battery and the Harbour area.

The whole group were able to see the Durham soldiers exhibition and Summer in Dunbar in the Town House. Their final day, August 11 will be spent at Dumfries House.
