Once the fourth biggest town in Scotland; Haddington remains one of the most desirable areas to live in East Lothian. Established cotton mills which reflect the town’s strong association with the cotton industry give the area strong historical appeal while varied facilities make it an ideal place to live.
Located 20 miles east of Edinburgh and nestled on the banks of the River Tyne, this affluent market town has strong transport links with surrounding areas. Those interested in exploring popular Scottish destinations such as Lammermuir Hills, Edinburgh city centre and Scottish Borders will find Haddington ideally situated with access to East Lothian’s coastal resorts also readily available.
Regular bus routes also operate to areas such as Berwick-Upon-Tweed and a number of bus stops are just a short distance from Market Street and High Street – the central areas of Haddington.
In Haddington town itself, independently-run shops feature alongside other attractions to offer a range of services to local residents. Galleries, cafes and restaurants are not in short supply either with Victorian style architecture giving the area a traditional appearance and plenty of historical charm.
