Lugton, a village in Dalkeith parish, Edinburghshire, on the left bank of the North Esk, 3½ furlongs W by N of the centre of Dalkeith town. Lugton barony, which was annexed to Dalkeith parish so late as 1633, had anciently a baronial fortalice, and belonged to a branch of the family of Douglas, but was possessed in 1693 by Anne, Duchess of Buccleuch.—Ord. Sur., sh. 32, 1857.
