Looking for a new home in Midlothian?
Midlothian is in a great location between Edinburgh and the Scottish Borders. You can be in the capital city or the countryside with ease from a new home here.
This county used to be one of Scotland’s important coal mining areas and many of the towns and villages share that heritage. Today though, there’s a gentle feel to the countryside that spreads out from the Pentland Hills just south of Edinburgh and into the farmland of Midlothian. It’s more about agriculture now than collieries, but it’s still a key place to live and work. Together, the Lothians - as East, West and Midlothian are called - include the shores of the Firth of Forth and the east coast amongst their landmarks. Edinburgh is the focal point for the Lothians, representing Scottish history, culture, commerce and government.
Back in Midlothian, the county has three key routes across it, the A68, A7 and A701, all heading south into the Scottish Borders and linking with the A720, Edinburgh’s ring-road. Borders Railway services operate trains along a stunning route, that’s picturesque as well as practical, from Tweedbank all the way to Edinburgh.
