There have been five Dunbar Baronetcies; the first four in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia, and the last in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. There is also a Hope-Dunbar Baronetcy of Baldoon.

The Dunbar baronets of Mochrum are notable as the 11th Baronet held that title for only two days before his death. The Dunbar baronets of Hempriggs are notable as the 8th Baronetess was one of only four (or possibly five) baronetesses in history; i.e. the title passes to heirs whomsoever rather than heirs male.
