To get an idea of mileage from your starting point and average driving times, we suggest you visit www.theaa.com and use their enhanced route planner, or alternatively www.multimap.com Crosswoodhill is not recognised as a destination, and typing in West Calder is misleading (it is 6 miles north on the A71 whereas Crosswoodhill is on the A70). We therefore suggest you use our postcode EH55 8LP as a destination or arrival point.

Crosswoodhill is on the main A70, one mile west of the B7008 which links the A70 to the A71. The A70 road is known locally as the Lang Whang, Scots for "long bootlace". Others call the A70 the Edinburgh - Lanark Road. Compared to most A roads it is a quiet road except for a few hours daily at commuter times. Guests in Orlege are hardly aware of passing traffic. The trees in front of the house act as a good visual and sound screen. You feel as though you are a million miles away from city sounds and buzz, but a 35 minute drive into the heart of Edinburgh will remind you of just how tranquil Crosswoodhill is in comparison.
