Newlandrig was greatly enhanced in recent years with the
completion of the A68 Dalkeith Bypass that links directly
onto the A720 City Bypass.
The site is located on the western edge of the attractive
Midlothian village of Newlandrig. Newlandrig is a
designated Conservation Area which also lies within an
Area of Great Landscape Value (AGLV).
The site is located in close proximity to the Gorebridge
station on the Borders Railway line that is currently under
contruction and due for completion in the Summer of
2015. The Gorebridge station will have ample car parking
and provide a fast link into Edinburgh City Centre.
More specifically, Newlandrig sits on the B6372 road,
roughly midway between the towns of Gorebridge, to the
west and Pathhead to the east. The site is extremely well
located for access to the city of Edinburgh, approximately
13 miles to the north-west. Access to the city from
The area surrounding Newlandrig and the subject site is
largely agricultural in nature although a key leisure and
amenity facility for the area is located a few hundred
metres to the east of Newlandrig in the form of Vogrie
Country Park. The park, which is owned and operated by
Midlothian Council is an extremely popular local attraction
and includes a 9 hole golf course, childrens’ adventure
playground, some 11.5 miles of marked trails, permanent
barbecue area and cafe as well as being host to a range
of outdoor events throughout the year. We believe the
existence of the country park within close proximity to the
proposed development at Newlandrig will be a key selling
point for the sale of the completed houses.

detached houses. Each unit has front and rear
