Lamar Island Battery, Dunbar

Feasibility Study

Lamar Island Battery is an 18th Century defensive structure overlooking the harbour in Dunbar and the Firth of Forth. Dunbar Harbour Trust commissioned rankinfraser to undertake a study into ways in which the accessibility, attractiveness and interpretation of the structure could be improved as part of a wider initiative to attract locals and visitors to Dunbar Harbour.

After consultation with the trust and local stakeholders a strategy incorporating ecology, public art and historic references was proposed to make subtle improvements without detracting from the special character of the place.
