Area Insights

Longformacus is the largest of the Lammermuir villages, set in an area of incredible natural beauty hidden away but perfectly located between the lively cities of Edinburgh and Newcastle upon Tyne. The village has a neighbourly community with the village hall and local church offering a variety of events and social opportunities for inhabitants and visitors. From Longformacus it’s an easy 10km drive Southeast to the town of Duns which offers essential local amenities, an 18 hole golf course, a water sports centre along the Whiteadder, and heritage sights such as Duns Castle and Manderston House. Heading Northwest over the hills is the slightly larger town of Haddington which offers an array of independent retailers, bars and restaurants and more widely recognised retailers.  

Longformacus is a quiet and peaceful village but offers excellent links to Edinburgh, Newcastle and even London. The A1 is within easy reach, whether driving North to Edinburgh and beyond or South through Berwick upon Tweed, Newcastle and The South. Regular trains from both Edinburgh and Berwick mean London can be just a 3 ½ hour journey away.

The nearby A697 provides easy commutable access to Scotland’s capital city, Newcastle and also Berwick upon Tweed which is only a 20 minute drive away. Longformacus is situated in the north of Berwickshire, and to the south of Midlothian offering great access to many other enchanting towns, villages and National parks throughout the Scottish Borders, East Lothian and Northumbria.
