Muir Houses Through Time

During COVID lockdown in 2020 we published a series of blogs on the history of the Muir buildings in Dunbar.  These proved extremely popular and we have combined them into an online exhibition to be enjoyed at your leisure.

We know a lot about John Muir’s life in Dunbar, but what about the house he lived in? The Muir family were not the first occupants of the plot.  There are tales of commerce, greed and deceit as we follow the lives of those who have occupied the site from the Iron Age onwards.
