Statement of Interest

The Suttie family, who owned Balgone from 1680 hold the motto

"Nothing Hazard, Nothing Have", included on rear elevation. J

Anderson Hamilton used a more wild Baronial for Balgone East

Lodge, listed in North Berwick Parish, and probably designed

the severe Baronial extension to Balgone House. South Lodge

now separated from Balgone Estate.
