The route starts and finishes in the market town of Haddington. Surrounded by fertile agricultural land, it is an ancient and attractive town of wide streets set around a compact centre, which remarkably for its size has 129 buildings listed as historically interesting. Most notable of these is the 14th-century St.Mary’s Church, Scotland’s largest parish church, with its ornate display of gargoyles.
