Things to see and do in Ormiston

Moving further away from the village you’ll find open spaces such as Vogrie Country Park, while seaside town Prestonpans is only four miles north.

The local school for younger children is Ormiston Primary School on Meadowbank, next to which you’ll find a play park which opens up to the Tyne Water river and miles of open countryside. The closest secondary school to the village is Ross High School, which is three miles to the north in Tranent.
Ormiston transport links
Ormiston isn’t far from the A1 which makes its way along the coast, and you can join up with this road to drive to Edinburgh in less than half an hour. It’s just over 10 minutes to Prestonpans, which is home to the nearest train station to Ormiston, and it’s a little more than that to Musselburgh. If you want to drive over to Glasgow, that’s a journey of around an hour along the M8 motorway.
