Study Description 

The catchment area of the Whiteadder river includes parts of the East Lothian parishes of Innerwick, Spott, Stenton and Whittingham. These hill areas are sparsely populated and separated from the low lying parts of East Lothian. Populated by hill farmers and their workers, they lived away from villages and towns and had to be more self sufficient. One historical commentator dismissed the area as having no historical importance but the area was of importance to the Borders monasteries and was a much used route between the coastal towns and the Borders towns.
