It was upon the strength of its agricultural industry that Haddington prospered, and the town was at the heart of Scotlands agricultural revolution in the mid-eighteenth century. Although relatively small today, Haddington was once the fourth largest town in Scotland, after Aberdeen, Roxburgh and Edinburgh.

Haddington suffered significantly in the wake of English invasions and disastrous floods, and it was also burned to the ground a number of times over the centuries. Despite this, the town continued to grow and prosper, as can be seen in its striking architecture. Today, Haddingtons rich history is evident with its wide streets and grand buildings, including St Marys kirk, the Town House and Lennoxlove Castle.
