Thorntonloch, Caravan Park, Innerwick, Dunbar, Scotland
We were looking for somewhere to stay near to Dunbar. Thorntonloch fitted the bill. Not only was it near to Dunbar but had the added attraction of being on the edge of the beach. We weren’t disappointed with the location our front bumper is just a couple of metres off the beach, I can hear the sea as I type this blog.
The site is mainly given over to statics. There are onyl half a dozen touring pitches as well as a small tent area at the edge of the car park. There are three access gates directly onto the mile or more of beautiful clean North Sea beach.
The toilet block is adequate (and quiet due to the lack of tourers).
This site however is a bit of a “Beauty and the Beast” location. Turn away from the sea and the back drop is Torness Nuclear Power Station. This giant of a building dominates a large part of the landscape. For me this wasn’t an issue. Walking the power station sea wall with its thousands of Acropods was an interesting opportunity.
The beach at Thorntonloch is superb and is skirted by the John Muir coastal path.
Don’t be put off by the power station, the sea front location of the pitches on this great little site more than makes up for it.
