Agriculture has formed the mainstay of many of the rural communities that make up Malleny Estate for generations. The Estate continues this tradition today and prospers from a mix of tenanted and in-hand farms. These weave a rich countryside tapestry of arable and pastoral lands. Managed uplands and moorland at the Southern end of the estate, within the Pentland Hills Regional Park, completes the diversity of landscape.
Malleny Estate stretches from the Water of Leith, between Currie & Balerno, up into the Pentland Hills of Midlothian. Farmland, reservoirs, moors & villages - the estate covers a diverse & fascinating topography.
Agriculture & Woodlands
Sustainable woodland management and our programme of new woodland planting is a source of pride for Malleny Estate. Recently planted woodlands at Sawpit Wood and Blinkbonny enhance and enlarge the already extensive woodlands on the estate.
An excellent and well maintained network of woodland paths provide good accessibility to a wide area and an important amenity to the local community.
Community & Amenity
Malleny Estate is home to many rural communities. At the heart of communities lie several important amenity buildings and activities that are let or enabled by the estate including the following:
Harlaw Reservoir at the base of the stunning Pentland Hills is host to Malleny Angling Club. For further information see the fishery page here.
