Stevenson House

Located a mile (1.5 km) east of Haddington, Stevenson House dates from the early 17th C., with connections to the Sinclair family, although parts may be as early as 1359. This three-storey house, with its harled exterior, was built around a square open courtyard, on the plan of a palace, but built in a more modest style. The building was squared-off and extended in the early 19th Century and restored in the 1950s. The interior is mostly late 17th C and 18th C, although corridors around the inner sides of the courtyard were added c.1820 and lined with wood panelling taken from the former Red Star liner S.S. Columbia in 1934. The house is known for its excellent collection of pictures and furniture, including a fine boulle library table.

The notable gardens include lawns surrounded by flowerbeds containing a mixture of herbaceous plants and shrubs. There is also a rose garden and a formal walled garden, many unusual plantings.
