East Calder is a popular village located in West Lothian. It forms part of ‘the Calders
(together with Mid and West Calder), three small neighbouring communities situated west
of Edinburgh and south of the “New Town” of Livingston. The property is ideally situated for
the commuter to Edinburgh and Glasgow. There is an excellent bus service which links the
village with the Edinburgh City Centre. The property is within easy reach of the A71 and M8
motorway network, with the local train station at Kirknewton and Edinburgh airport a short
drive away. East Calder has three primary schools, the non-denominational East Calder and
Calderwood Primary Schools, and St Paul’s RC School. The non-denominational schools are
in the catchment area for West Calder High School, while St Paul’s is in the catchment for
St Margaret’s Academy, served by a school bus. The village also has its own nursery. There
is a leisure centre and lots of local amenities, including a doctors’ surgery, a dentist, a post
office, a Tesco local, 2 Co-op mini supermarkets, hairdressers, a local pub and takeaways.
More facilities can also be found a few minutes away in the village of Mid Calder, with a
short drive to Livingston which offers a wide range of shops in two main shopping centres
and various retail parks


A unique opportunity to acquire a parcel of land in the heart of East Calder. This land parcel
is understood to have previously served as a quarry site. The site may represent suitability
for smallholding, equestrian or development subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
No site investigation reports or technical information remain publicly available on the
planning portal from a previous application, however a request for such information may be
made to the local authority. The previous planning reference is 0109/FUL/19. A third party
owns the road to the west (a right of access is granted over) and further lands north of this
property, contact details for the owners are available through the selling agents. Purchasers
should familiarise themselves with the most up to date information from SEPA: https://
Particulars of Sale
There are two areas identified as being at low risk of surface water flooding. Whilst it
is recognised that the land may represent development value, the site is not currently
allocated for development. Purchasers should seek advice in relation to long term prospects,
particularly in relation to current key policies and environmental factors concerning
previous quarry use. A boundary fence will be erected by the purchaser of North Cottage
which was recently marketed for sale. Purchasers will need to make their own enquiries
regarding service connections.
