New. Yours?

The benefits of modernity and high building standards hardly compare with the horse stabling that existed on the site from four centuries ago. Such a characterful history, bang in the centre of the market town where the brains of the Scottish Enlightenment came a-wooing are not ten a penny even before they've been given a thorough renovation. Add to that the ability to combine town life with the wonderful East Lothian countryside on your doorstep and the sense of opportunity becomes apparent.

Location

Haddington gives you a character that emanates from a broad cross-section of society. Another way to say it might be that it has something for everyone - but you'd think so when it had been planned 900 years ago by the king, played birthplace to another and serviced the county throughout as the central town in which to do business. Its country-town status boasts culture with food and drink; work with recreation; shopping and education. As if that were not enough, the excellent road links to the capital, the coast and the hills cover all bases. A good rail network nearby with stations at Drem (4.9m) and Longniddry (5.9m) offer civilised commuting to the city in 45 minutes. Head to the beach or the heather and you'd think East Lothian had it all with Haddington in the centre.

Iconic. Romanic. Historic.

George may have slain the Dragon from its coaching inn and post-house title, but one of Haddington's most recognisable and iconic buildings as fresh mortar between its stones. Daniel Defoe described the inn as "the best inn I have seen in Scotland and inferior to none I have seen on the London Road" - albeit some 300 years ago. A century later, the town's most famous daughter, Jane Welsh was introduced to her future husband Thomas Carlyle at The George after a day's walk from Edinburgh. How fitting, then for The George to play host to one of the oldest and still noble Heddingtoun Burns Club.
