Solicitors in Midlothian


Midlothian is a county in Scotland, found in the south east of the country. It borders the Scottish Borders to its south, East Lothian and the city of Edinburgh. It has a total population of around 80,000 inhabitants, and is a fairly small county being the 28th largest in population size in Scotland. Key towns in Midlothian include Bonnyrigg, Loanhead, Mayfield, Penicuik and Shawfair. The county town is Dalkeith, which has a population of just over 11,000 inhabitants.


The economy of Midlothian is vibrant and diverse, reflecting the successful recovery undergone by the region since the decline of its traditional industries like coal mining. Today the area markets itself as a hub for Scotland’s Knowledge Economy, and looks to attract investors in high tech and IT industries, alongside more traditional sectors such as manufacturing and construction. The future of Midlothian looks bright, with new investment being sought in a greater range of science and biotechnological industries. Nevertheless, the majority of Midlothian’s employment remains in real estate, health and social work and retail.
