Welcome to Glenesk
Occupying a beautiful situation alongside the picturesque River North Esk, sheltered by a fringe of mature trees, this outstandingly attractive development of modern, energy efficient two, three, four and five bedroom homes is a prestigious addition to the prosperous village of Lasswade. The semi-rural setting, nestling in the shade of the spectacular viaduct of the old Esk Valley Railway, is a short drive from the Edinburgh City Bypass and seven miles from Edinburgh city centre.
Living in Lasswade
Quality of life is about the details of everyday living. From the little things, like knowing the nearest place to pick up a pint of milk, to more important matters
like finding the right school or having a health centre nearby, you need to know that the community you’re moving to will support you and your family, as well
as being a pleasant place to live.
Around two miles from the City of Edinburgh Bypass and seven and a half from Princes Street, the development is extremely convenient for travel throughout the central belt and to Edinburgh Airport. Lasswade and Bonnyrigg are served
by Lothian Region buses. Route 31, which includes night buses, serves the city centre while service 40 runs to Penicuik, Musselburgh and Portobello. Both stop within a short walk of the development.
The picturesque Laird and Dog, a few minutes walk away, combines a traditional bar and a popular conservatory restaurant. Even closer, the recently-opened Paper Mill restaurant, housed in a sensitively converted mill building, has already won positive reviews. There is a wide selection of restaurants, pubs and cafés in Bonnyrigg, within walking distance.
Leisure & Recreation
Lasswade is surrounded by wonderful country-side. The Moorfoot Hills and the Pentland Hills, home of the Midlothian Snowsports Centre, are both nearby, and the River North Esk offers walks through Bilston Wood and on to Roslin Castle and the exquisite Roslin Chapel. For indoor fitness facilities, the excellent Lasswade Centre incorporates a 25m swimming pool, hydrotherapy suite, gym and sports facilities as well as a café and a local library, and there are two golf courses, Broomieknow and Kings Acre, on the edge of the village.
There are recycling bins for glass bottles and jars, household packaging, textiles
and paper in the car park of the Laird and Dog pub, with additional facilities
at the Somerfield store in Bonnyrigg High Street. Larger items such as white goods, household appliances and furniture are accepted at the Midlothian Furniture Recycling Project in Dalkeith and Stobhill Recycling Centre in Newtongrange, both around three miles away.
Education & Health
The development is within walking distance of Lasswade Primary, Hawthornden Primary and St Mary’s RC Primary schools, and Lasswade High School is roughly
a mile away. Both the Old Orchard dental surgery and Bonnyrigg Health Centre, which houses three medical practices in modern premises, are less than a mile from the development.
Bonnyrigg High Street is a traditional shopping area that covers most everyday needs, with supermarkets, butchers, newsagents, pharmacies, a delicatessen, hot
food takeaways, banks, hairdressers and other services. For a wider choice of specialist retailers, department stores, malls and high street names, the superb shopping areas of Edinburgh are just a short trip away.
