Nestled in Haddington’s surrounding pasture, the Home of the Duke of Hamilton is open to visitors all year round, where delights include the death mask of Mary, Queen of Scots, grand paintings and many other artefacts, such as portraits, archives, furnishings, china and memorabilia which create a unique record of the three families who played important roles in Scotland’s political and cultural past. In 2006 the Duke and Duchess of Hamilton began an extensive renovation project to renew the life of the house.
