DUDDINGSTON, a parish, in the county of Edinburgh. This place derived its name, anciently Dodinston, from the family of Dodin, to whom it belonged in the reign of David I., and of whom Hugo, filius Dudini de Dudineston, appears as witness to a grant of lands to the canons of Holyrood. The manor was subsequently the property of the Thompson family, of whom Sir Thomas was created a baronet by Charles I. in 1637

Duddingston Village has been settled since the 12th century. Once a busy weaving centre, it produced a coarse linen cloth known as "Duddingston hardings". Ancient civilization terraces can be seen behind the village below Arthur's Seat, and late bronze age artifacts were found in the Loch in 1776.

Duddingston dates from the 12th century and owes its existence to the Early church built on an elevation above the loch by the Abbot of Kelso, who had been gifted land by David I. On that same pleasing site today is Duddingston Kirk, a characterful Norman building which is one of the oldest churches in Scotland still in use.

Today Duddingston is one of Edinburgh's best-preserved villages. Duddingston Loch is now a nature preserve and a Christmas card setting for ice skaters and curlers. And if their is any pub in Edinburgh which still has the weathered character of an old country pub, it must be the Sheep Heid Inn
