Snowdropping at Newhailes...

The Palladian style country house of Newhailes was given this name by Sir David Dalrymple in 1709, who bought it and named it after his East Lothian estate of Hailes. Dalrymple paid 40,000 Merks (a Scottish silver coin) at the time.

The house itself was built in the 17th century by architect James Smith. Smith had studied to become a priest in Rome but was inspired by the likes of Venetian Andrea Palladio to become an architect instead. Smith fathered 32 children across two marriages, so perhaps priesthood was not for him anyway...
