Our Location


Short distance from Edinburgh

Whitehill Woods offers discerning home buyers a remarkable opportunity to be part of a truly special, secluded country estate, with spectacular views and a short distance from Edinburgh.

This unique new development is set within the grounds of Whitehill House, one of Scotland’s great Tudor Jacobean revival houses, designed by the renowned architect William Burn (1789-1870) for Lord Ramsay.

The estate is set beside the picturesque Whitehill House Golf Course designed by the eminent Swiss golf course architect, John Chilver-Stainer, providing the backdrop to the entire site, with a new Club House incorporating a small bar and café, to which residents are welcome.


There are good schools in the area, but the real magic of Whitehill Woods lies in the extraordinary diversity of activities that are right on your doorstep. There really is something special for everyone here.

With Whitehill Golf Course adjacent, keen golfers have the ideal opportunity to play. There are also a wide range of lovely walks in our woods, which adjoin the property, and the Esk Valley Trail is close by.

For the more energetic buyer there are excellent mountain biking trails in the surrounding countryside, and for those who enjoy horse riding, Thornton Farm stables are but a stone’s throw away. Whitehill Woods is the perfect location for children to enjoy the wonders of the countryside and join in the regular outdoor activities organised within the local community.

Slightly further afield you will find a multitude of diversions from the fascinating National Mining Museum right through to world famous historic sites such as Rosslyn Chapel.

Local shopping is excellent with all the major supermarkets close by – Tesco, Sainsburys. Morrisons and M&S, as well as Straiton Retail Park.

Whitehill Woods offers all the pleasures of true country living and yet is remarkably close to Edinburgh. It is ideally suited for commuters, with Edinburgh International Airport easily accessed from the City Bypass.
