Conveniently located for travel throughout Midlothian council as well as international travel, Newbridge is a village within Kirkliston parish.

Together, the population of these two small villages was 1,074 at the time of the 2011 census. This quiet residential area offers residents a number of services, including bank branches, a bowling club, and several hotels due to its location near the airport. All of the attractions of Edinburgh’s city centre are within easy reach, yet Newbridge offers the atmosphere of a smaller village, set amidst the Midlothian countryside.

Getting around

Located just a mile outside of Edinburgh’s main airport terminal, Newbridge is often a hub of transportation activity. Most residents of Edinburgh have driven around the Newbridge roundabout at some point, and it’s considered to be one of the busiest junctions in all of Scotland. The major M8 and M9 motorways meet here at this roundabout, and there is also an underpass for traffic to keep moving between the two motorways without using the roundabout. Motorists can use the A8 dual carriageway to get into Edinburgh’s city centre from Newbridge. It’s approximately a half hour’s journey to get to the Royal Mile or Waverley Train Station. Residents can access national rail services here.
