UK > Lothian

Lothian (Lowden in Scots, Lodainn in Gaelic) forms a traditional region of Scotland, lying between the southern shore of the Firth of Forth and the Lammermuir Hills.

Historically, the term Lothian is used for a province encompassing the present area plus the Scottish Borders region. The name is related to the legendary British King Loth or Lot. In the 7th century it became the northern part of the Saxon Kingdom of Northumbria.

Subsequent Scottish history saw Lothian subdivided into the shires of West Lothian, Midlothian and East Lothian leading to the phrase "the Lothians". Occasionally these were known by the anglicised names of "Linlithgowshire", "Edinburghshire" and "Haddingtonshire", which omitted all reference to Lothian.
