What the locals say
Laura Woodmansey is a local resident. Here's what she thinks about living in Tranent.
"Tranent is a fantastic place to live. Since I moved there in 2011 the area has been improved greatly by the addition of shops like Asda and Aldi. Living with my young daughter, the park facilities are all so close to hand and all very well maintained. The soft play facility at the Loch Centre is also within walking distance, so there are so many things to do.
The public transport links to Edinburgh and the rest of East Lothian are extremely reliable and cost effective. East Lothian is a beautiful part of Scotland and it’s all within easy reach from Tranent.
Tranent also has great community spirit and there’s always something fun going on."
