Dunbar, Scotland

Visit to Dunbar at the weekend. There’s an eighteenth century building called Lauderdale House that has been turned into flats; it has a sphinx.

I find the side view of the building slightly disturbing, those inset entrances.

It is a town with plenty of pleasing curve, windows, doorways and benches.

They call it “sunny Dunny” and it wasn’t always that during the visit; but milky sky or low sun, the winter light brought out good things in the place. On Sunday lunchtime we had a drink in the Black Bull and got the train back south.
