The Dunbar Harbour Trust has improved the historic Battery on Lamer Island - the prominent site between the Victoria and Cromwell Harbours in the town. Dunbar Battery, which has a rich and varied history dating back to 1781, was last occupied in the 1930s and the Trust has sensitively protected the existing structure and improved access to the area. 

Steven Anderson, the Director of the DHT responsible for the project states that "We  focussed on 4 key themes for the project: improving access to and inside the Battery for all users, the protection of the existing structure of the Battery making the most of the existing historic features, to add to the Battery experience and create an improved public space and destination within the harbour and, finally, to use this project as a catalyst to improve the general harbour environment for all users, locals and visitors.”
