The first President of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, Duke Henry was the son of the Earl of Dalkeith and succeeded to the Dukedom in 1751, a year after his father's death. After schooling at Eton he was tutored by Adam Smith with whom he and his brother, the Honourable Campbell Scott, left for a tour of the Continent in 1764. This ended in tragedy when the younger brother was assassinated on the streets of Paris in October 1766.
