Haddington

[Lennoxlove House]

Haddington is an affluent market town, formerly a staging post on the Great North Road. It's also the county capital of East Lothian and is home to Scotland's largest parish church: St Mary's, next to the 16th century arches of Nungate Bridge over the River Tyne. Comfortably separated from the town by parkland is Lennoxlove, the seat of the Dukes of Hamilton and worth touring.
