Property Details

West Linton EH46 7BS


A prime rural house plot in a highly sought-after location

Residential Sold - West Linton

The plot measures approximately 1.08 acres (0.44 Ha) and comprises a well-defined, generally level area between the public road and the newly developed and adjoining property, known as “The Old Barn”. It is approached off the public road, by way of an existing shared and tree lined private access track, from which site access is taken. It is partially enclosed by fencing and retains a number of mature trees, which provide added shelter and amenity.

The plot is serviced with mains connections to electricity and water.

Views from the plot are to the north over the adjoining paddock (Lot 2).


The plot is located approximately half a mile south of West Linton village, within a predominantly rural area, with a number of houses close by, but with open fields and woodland dominating the surroundings. The plot is accessed off the “C” classified “Bogsbank Road”, which runs south from the village and joins the A701 at Romanno Bridge, approximately two and a half miles to the south.

West Linton is a popular conservation village which lies approximately eighteen miles from central Edinburgh and with a small number of shops, hotel/bar and restaurant, golf course, church and primary school. The village benefits from excellent access to Edinburgh and as such is popular with commuters, however, it retains a real village community within a pleasant rural area. Larger town services are available in Penicuik, approximately eight miles to the north-east, with secondary schooling provided in Peebles, approximately fourteen miles to the south-east.


From West Linton village centre (old clock) take the Main Street (B7059) south. Once past St Andrews Church and “Olde Toll Tea House” on your right, turn right onto Bogsbank Road. Continue on Bogsbank Road out of the village for approximately half a mile. The paddock (Lot 2) adjoins Bogsbank Road on the left after the bridge over West Water, with the access to Lots 1 & 3 approximately one hundred meters further up, on the left.

The postcode for satnav purposes is EH46 7BS. It is strongly recommended that you do not rely on a Satnav in this rural location and check on a route map prior to any viewing.


The plot (Lot 1) benefits from “Planning Permission in Principle” for the development of a single dwelling (Planning Reference 21/00285/PPP and Appeal Reference 21/00010/RREF). This was issued by Scottish Borders Council on 19 November 2021 and is subject to a number of planning conditions.

The original “Intention to grant planning permission” issued by Scottish Borders Council required that a Section 75 Agreement or other suitable legal agreement be entered into regarding the payment of a financial contribution for West Linton Primary School and Peebles High School. A Section 69 Agreement has been agreed and payments made by the seller to the satisfaction of the planning authority.

There are no other planning permissions.


The plot (Lot 1) benefits from mains electricity and public water onsite.


The plot (Lot 1) is accessed off the privately owned and shared tree lined access track from the public road, over which the plot will be granted unhindered access rights. Maintenance of the track is shared with the other adjoining properties.


The plot is sold together with and subject to all existing rights of way, servitudes, wayleaves, and others, whether contained in the Title Deeds or otherwise and purchasers will be deemed to have satisfied themselves in all such respects.


Fencing will be carried out at the sole expense of the purchaser.


The plot will be sold with all necessary rights of access from the public road, subject to agreed maintenance obligations over shared access areas.
