Introduction

The Lothian region of Scotland comprises four main areas. East Lothian stands between Edinburgh and the North Sea and comprised mostly rich farmland with extensive grouse moor to the south. Midlothian and the City of Edinburgh take up the central portion of the region, to the south of the capital city and comprise a mixture of urban, industrial and agricultural landforms. West Lothian forms the western boundary with farmland and old industrial areas predominating. Sites are widely spread with isolated groups of sites dotted around local areas. The number of sites in the Lothians is around 60 and intensive agriculture over many centuries offers little chance of new discoveries, although nothing is certain and a dedicated, and lucky, stone hunter may be rewarded.
