Pathhead village is a conservation area in Midlothian, Scotland.LocationPathhead is located around south east of Dalkeith and south of Scotland's capital city, Edinburgh. It lies above the east bank of the River Tyne. The name of the village is due to its position. It stands above sea level and is at the head of the ascent of the main route from Edinburgh to Lauder. The A68 road (part of the European route E15) is now the main route through the village. With the opening of the Dalkeith bypass in 2008, it is possible to travel to Edinburgh in 10–15 minutes.Historic buildingsA five-arch stone bridge carries the A68 road over the Tyne Water at the north west entrance to the village. The bridge is high, and each of the five spans is across. It was built in 1827–1831 to the designs of engineer Thomas Telford, and is a Category A listed building.To the north of the village is Preston Hall, an 18th-century country house designed by William Adam for the Duchess of Gordon, and later rebuilt by Robert Mitchell for Alexander Callander, whose descendants still occupy the house. On the opposite side of the Tyne Water is Oxenfoord Castle, originally a 16th-century tower house belonging to the MakGill Viscount of Oxfuird, which was greatly extended in a castellated style by Robert Adam, and further modified by William Burn for the Earl of Stair. West of Pathhead is Vogrie Country Park, centred on the 19th-century Vogrie House, by architect Andrew Heiton. The park is extensive and very popular, particularly around the summer months. It also features a 9-hole golf course.
