LOCATION AND LOCAL AREA
SHAWFAIR IS EVOLVING
Shawfair’s name comes from a 19th century farmstead, with the original farmhouse still overlooking the area from a northern ridge. Today, life is designed around commuters and families, where the growing community is both vibrant and welcoming.
It’s an exciting time to move here. The masterplan is to encourage communities to enjoy being more active, offering 160 acres of community woodland, landscaped green space and 8 miles of cycle paths. And the vision for the town centre is a modern hub for shopping, socialising and cultural events.
LIFE AT SHAWFAIR
From culture to sports to woodland walks, there’s something for the whole family to enjoy. You can look forward to shops, restaurants, markets, a swimming pool and art galleries. Not to mention essential amenities like health centres, libraries and schools. There’s Dalkeith Secondary School, Danderhall Primary School and Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh, with more educational facilities coming. School catchment areas are subject to change, please contact your local school directly for confirmation.
However you like to travel, you’re within easy reach of cycle paths, Park and Ride routes, major road networks, trains and planes. Shawfair to Edinburgh Waverley is just a 15 minute train journey, Edinburgh Airport is just 20 minutes away and the Edinburgh City Bypass onto the A1 and M9 link roads take you as far north, or south, as you wish to go.
NEARBY & BEYOND
Shawfair is ideally positioned to enjoy lots of great days out. Local attractions include Dalkeith Country Park, with Fort Douglas Adventure Park for little ones and Go Ape for the more adventurous in your tribe. Explore Mary Queen of Scots’ former home at Craigmillar Castle, unearth the area’s rich mining history at the National Mining Museum, or simply relax and build sandcastles at the award-winning Portobello Beach. And not forgetting Fort Kinnaird with over 70 brands and high street shops and restaurants under one roof.
