The local area guide to living in Humbie

In East Lothian, one of the 32 council areas of Scotland, you’ll find the small parish and village of Humbie. It’s a small area, with only a few hundred people, only a few miles from Edinburgh. It’s an old settlement, formerly part of the Barony of Keith, with several old and storied building related to his history. Close by, you’ll find the Keith Marischal, a category-B listed building that is a fine example of the Baronial architectural house, towards the North of the town. The local church, Humbie Parish Church, was built in the 18th century, and later Gothicized. It still holds service today and though in its past it’s changed its Church Union several times, it is today Church of Scotland. Haide Castle, a 14th century fortification, is also nearby, within walking distance and open to the public. 20 minutes away is Haddington, the administrative centre for the region, and Musselburgh, the very edge of Edinburgh, is only 25 minutes away as well.

There are also two other primary schools in the nearby area, one in Pencaitland, and another in Channelkirk. There are also nurseries in the area, with ‘Pinnocchio’s Children’s Nurseries’ being in neighbouring Lasswade. Three high schools are close to the town.
