The county of Midlothian is one of 32 Scottish council areas and is a lieutenancy area. It is bounded by the City of Edinburgh, East Lothian and the Scottish Borders regions. Located just 10 miles from Edinburgh it is a gorgeous county, defined by the Pentland Hills in the west and the Moorfoot Hills in the south with undulating hills and thick wooded countryside in between. It is also packed with historic sites.
Vogerie Country Park for example, near Gorebridge, is a magnificent 19th century estate that is surrounded by farmland and woodland and features a formal park and a wonderful walled garden.
Another famous attraction is Rosslyn Chapel, a splendid 15th century Gothic structure famous for its beautiful carvings and association with the Knights Templar (and more recently, its place in Dan Brown's 'Da Vinci Code.').
There are hundreds of other outstanding historical sites, from Arniston Houst to Borthwick Castle, Dalhousie Castle to Newbattle Abbey, Roslin Castle to Roslin Glen Country Park, Dalkeith Palace to Wallace's Cave. In addition the Scottish Mining Museum is one of the best examples of a Victorian colliery in all of the UK.
Most visitors to Midloathian will be there for Edinburgh however, and what a city it is. From the Old Town and New Town districts now listed as UNESCO World Heritage sites to the bohemian nightlife in the shadow of 15th century buildings; from Canongate Kirk to Greyfriars Kirk to Holyrood Abbey and Edinburgh Castle towering over the city, there is history everywhere.
For architecture buffs, Edinburgh has it all from battlements and castles to Charlotte Square to the City Chambers, (designed by John Adam) and for art lovers The National Gallery of Scotland and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art are among the finest in the world. No trip to the UK is complete without stopping in wonderful corner of Scotland.

Death of the High Street?
The BBC reports that despite councils' attempts to kurb them, the UK's high streets have seen a huge growth in fast food outlets. Could this mark the death knell for the Great British high street, and what can we do about it to halt its decline?
Discrimination by Postcode
You really couldn't make it up, could you? Some of the country's most vulnerable people are missing out on their weekly £25 Cold Weather Payment, just because the system that's in operation is discriminating against them because payments are based on postcode, rather than geographic location.
The Redesign is Underway
Well, the current website was absolutely in dire need of a good redesign - from the ground up. So I set out to pull it all apart and get it up and running again to become the most comprehensive guide to every postcode in the UK. And it's been a long, tough job from start to finish - and quite possibly the biggest project I've ever undertaken.
