LOT 2 - Two grazing paddocks with direct access onto the public road.

Commercial Sold - Penicuik

Lot 2

Lot 2 lies to the south of the plot (Lot 1) and comprises an adjoining single field of sloping, mixed permanent grassland with small wetland habitat area and trees along the fenceline with the southern field. The south field is also down to grass and slopes to the south. The two fields total approximately 6.63 acres (2.68 Ha). The two fields, along with the plot, offer the opportunity to create an attractive smallholding, in an appealing area, with open rural views.


The land (Lot 2) is located on the north-west edge of the village of Howgate, which is small conservation village within south Midlothian. The area is predominantly rural, with a number of village houses close by to the north and south, but with open fields and views to the Pentland Hills dominating the surroundings. The land is accessed off the B7026 public road, which runs north from the village and joins the A701, approximately three miles to the north, with Edinburgh City centre being approximately eleven miles north from the land.

Howgate is a small, rural, conservation village, centred around a village green. 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 two miles to the north-west, including primary and secondary schooling. Major out of town shopping is available at Straiton, approximately five miles to the north, along with Edinburgh Park and Ride facilities and connections onto the A720, Edinburgh City By-pass.


From the Straiton junction on the A720, Edinburgh City By-pass, head south on the A701, signposted to Penicuik. Continue towards Penicuik on the A701 at the “Gowkley Moss Roundabout” but just after, branch off to the left onto the B7026 at Auchendinny. Continue on the B7026 through Auchendinny and the hamlet of Loanstone. Approximately one mile beyond Loanstone, the road enters the Howgate “30” limit and the land is on the right hand side at the bottom of the hill, before the roundabout.

The postcode for satnav purposes is EH26 8QD. 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.
