Enjoy village life at Merchants Gait
Set on the edge of East Calder in West Lothian, Merchants Gait offers picturesque surroundings with the Almondell & Calderwood Country Park on the doorstep. Edinburgh city and Edinburgh Airport are only a short drive away, making the development an excellent choice for commuters. This will be a collection of 215 new homes. It will benefit from tranquil surroundings yet will have the lively town life of Livingston only a short distance away.
East Calder is one of three small neighbouring communities, 'The Calders', just outside Livingston. It's close to the A71 which connects with the City of Edinburgh Bypass at Hermiston, and you can join the M8 for Glasgow at Junction 3 north of Livingston. For a day in Scotland's beautiful capital, the city centre is just 14 miles away, and for a day in the countryside, The Pentland Hills Regional Park is even closer.
The health, safety and well-being of our workforce, customers, suppliers and our wider communities will always be our first priority.
