North Middleton is the closest village (three quarters of a mile) and boasts an excellent, new primary school and a very popular community centre.
Gorebridge is the nearest town and is located approximately eleven miles to the South East of Edinburgh City Centre and offers local schooling, a good variety of convenience shopping together with a variety of leisure and recreational facilities and all usual amenities including restaurants.
