MacArthurs Store

Door open days

East Lothian

McArthur�s Store, or Spott�s Girnell (granary) as it was first known, was first recorded in 1658 located on a spur of rock within the eastern harbour of Dunbar that had been established a few years earlier under Oliver Cromwell. Early charters described the property as the �white herring house with girnell� with its close, yards, and falls, with �full sea in all places�. The building is one of the oldest continuously used harbour buildings in Scotland.MacArthur's Store is a 17th century warehouse situated on the quayside of the old Cromwell Harbour in Dunbar.� The Dunbar harbour Trust has managed its restoration over the past two years as fishermen's stores and to provide an office and meeting place for the Trust.�
