Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Edinburgh & The Lothians...

Lying on the banks of the Firth of Forth, Abercorn is home to one of Scotland’s most splendid mansions, Hopetoun House, the seat of the Marquis of Linlithgow.

The main part of the property was built by Sir William Bruce Kinross in the late 17th century. Its two wings with domed octagonal tower were later added by the famous Adams family. Within is Chippendale furniture and important paintings; without is parkland and formal gardens overlooking the Forth.
