Dunbar House

It’s been blowing a hoolie here all day. I had appointments in Dunbar and decided today’s blip needed to be static...although I was nearly blown off my feet in the process!

Standing proudly at the end of the high street, although now known as Lauderdale House, Dunbar House dates from 1740 with the earliest section being built for Captain James Fall the local MP. By 1790 it was owned by the 8th Earl of Lauderdale who commissioned Robert Adams and his brother James to extend the building and move the front door from the high street to north side of the building, adding the pillared porch and balustraded balcony.

The building was later used as army barracks and now belongs a housing association.
