Belhaven Brewery is a 23 minute walk, 6 minute cycle or 4 minute taxi ride from Dunbar railway station if you take the short route; or a 35 minute walk / 10 minute cycle by the scenic coastal route.

Walking or Cycling

Walking or cycling from the Railway Station / Town Centre – the shorter route (23 minute walk / 6 minute bike):

Turn Left at the top of Station Road onto Countess Road. Continue 0.4 miles, then

Right onto Lammermuir Crescent and Right again onto Boroughdales (past the Primary School).

At the T-junction at the end turn Left onto the A1087. Continue 0.6 miles then Left just after the Brig and Barrel pub onto Brewery Lane. The Brewery is at the end of the lane.

Walking or cycling from the Railway Station / Town Centre – the scenic route (35 minute walk / 10 minute bike):

Turn Right at the top of Station Road past the Royal Mackintosh Hotel and then Left onto Dunbar’s historic High Street. Follow the High Street for 0.3miles then, after passing John Muir’s Birthplace on your left, take the first exit at the roundabout then turn immediately right onto Bayswell Road. Continue straight on Bayswell Road as its name changes to Mayville Park then North Road then finally Back Road as the view opens out to your right over Winterfield Golf Course and the sea beyond.

At the end of Back Road, around a mile on from that roundabout, turn Left onto Shore Road then 200 yards later Left again onto the A1087 and soon Right onto Brewery Lane. The brewery – and a refreshing pint – is at the bottom of the lane.

There is an even more scenic route along the John Muir Way, details below.

On Foot from John Muir Way

Our Brewery lies less than half a mile from The John Muir Way, a coast-to-coast walking and cycling route that crosses Scotland from Helensburgh in the west to Dunbar in the east.

The east end of the route begins at the John Muir Birthplace on Dunbar High Street and from here there is a well-signed path along the coast.

From the west, the section from North Berwick to Dunbar is a good 15 miles across farmland and coast.

Whichever direction you approach from, when you reach the “bridge to nowhere” at Belhaven Bay, walk south down Shore Road. Turn left at the end along the A107 then right down Brewery Lane and you will find the brewery at the end of the lane.

By Train

Dunbar is 20 minutes from Waverley Station in Edinburgh and run approximately 1 per hour throughout the day. For more details of times and ticket prices look at

By Car

Our postcode is EH42 1PE. 

We welcome visitors on all modes of transport but, as part of your brewery tour includes tasting our beers and as that’s not really compatible with driving, we recommend public transport to avoid risk of drawing the short straw.

If you do have to drive, take the A1 towards Dunbar. At the Thistly Cross Roundabout by Belhaven Fruit Farm (The first Dunbar roundabout heading from Edinburgh, the second from Berwick upon Tweed) take the first exit onto A199 then second exit (A1087) at the next roundabout towards Dunbar. After passing West Barns and the signs for Belhaven village and the Belhaven caravan park on your left, look out for a sharp right turn down into Brewery Lane. The brewery is at the end of the lane. Buzz at the barrier and our friendly receptionist will let you in!  Parking for tours is available at the brewery.
