SEATON HOUSE. Scottish, Air (whole time). F Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Seaton House was the seat of the Earls of Winton, but was attained following the defeat of the Jacobites in 1715. It was allowed to fall into decay and eventually became the property of the Earl of Weemyss and March, who built a new mansion on the site after a plan by Adams.
