Comfortably separated by parkland from the town of Haddington is Lennoxlove, a 15th century mansion and the seat of the Dukes of Hamilton. Formerly a tower house called Lethington Tower, the original tower has been incorporated into an several-times-expanded, grand residence which is still lived in today. Despite this, tours run a few days a week over the summer months, taking in a varied set of public rooms (including a very impressive, vaulted Great Hall) and luxurious bedrooms. Unfortunately, no photos were permitted during our tour.
