Nestled on the edge of The Wisp and Village of Danderhall with the captivating Pentland Hills, Shawfair North, with a blend of mining villages, market towns and city living all situated amongst its natural beauty; Stewart Milne Homes plan to build a collection of around 115 premium 3, 4, 5 & 6 bedroom detached homes in Shawfair North accessed from ‘The Wisp’.
Rural living means cleaner air, and an altogether more natural environment. What’s planned is an overall area that consists of a well-defined and attractive town centre with restaurants, offices, shops, markets, art galleries, libraries, health centres, a swimming pool and nursery and school education from ages 3 onwards.
Schooling provision within Shawfair will develop in anticipation of the increasing number of families moving there.
Current arrangements/timescales for additional provision:
The Edinburgh City Bypass (A720) offers quick links to Edinburgh Airport (14 miles), Glasgow (50 miles) and other destinations. The A1 is only minutes away.
