About the location


Gullane 8 miles; North Berwick 9.5 miles; Dunbar 11 miles; Edinburgh 18.7 miles

Twenty miles east of Edinburgh is the small town of Haddington, which has long been the cultural and geographical centre for East Lothian, and sits on the north-east bank of the River Tyne. Once famous for its mills, it was also the fourth-largest town in Scotland during the Middle-Ages, and went on to be the centre of the Scottish Agricultural Revolution.
The medieval layout of the town has been little altered since then, and to preserve the historic buildings the government rehabilitated many of Haddington's structures to ensure their preservation. Nowadays, Haddington is a beautiful market town, rich in history and with many attractions. Travel over to Lennoxlove House, one of Scotland’s most ancient and notable houses, in the middle of an extensive estate, or roam about the Butterdean Wood amongst the rich selection of flora and fauna, where Roe deer graze and the birdlife is vast. Play some holes at the long-established Haddington Golf Club where visiting parties are welcome, and you can relax in the clubhouse afterwards. Haddington will serve you as the perfect location to explore this gorgeous county of East Lothian.
