Broomlee Centre

Why Choose Broomlee?

Located 14 miles south of Edinburgh, Broomlee Centre still retains a truly rural atmosphere. Set within more than 30 acres of grounds at the foot of the Pentland Hills, the Centre offers a broad programme of activities to all visiting groups which include schools, youth groups, special needs, university, corporate and large events with more than 800 participants.

Broomlee is a great base for walking trails in the Pentlands or mountain biking at Glentress. Bike washing facilities and secure bike storage can be arranged.
