Introduction to the Lothians
The Lothians (West, Mid and East) surround Edinburgh and are a complete contrast to the capital. Famous houses ring the city, such as Newhailes in Musselburgh, shown right, whilst the countryside meets the Borders at the Pentland Hills and the coast meets the Firth of Forth in the west and the North Sea to the east.

Bass Rock from North Berwick Where the Firth of Forth meets the North Sea at North Berwick, the great Bass Rock, shown left, marks the entrance to the Firth. To the west of Edinburgh are the famous Forth Bridges and, at Linlithgow, a former Royal Palace.
