History, culture and modern amenities

Midlothian lies immediately south of Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city. It distinguishes itself through its variety and beautiful tourist attractions. Its boundaries are the Moorfoot Hills and the Pentland Hills. Some of the main towns in Midlothian are Penicuik, Bonnyrigg and Dalkeith.

Midlothian has a vibrant and competitive local economy. Previously dominated by traditional industries such as coal mining, it has been radically transformed in recent years into a key centre of Scotland’s knowledge economy. Indeed, Midlothian has emerged as a UK, European and international centre for the developing biotechnology and life sciences sector and has a world-famous reputation for research, development and production.
