Cousland Smiddy

Hadfast Road, Cousland
Dalkeith EH22 2NZ

In its heyday, the Smiddy was at the centre of the village social life. On long summer evenings, the smith worked late and folk came to watch the work and have a crack; games of quoits were played (throwing horse shoes at a marker post) and even boxing matches were sometimes held. The 18th century Smiddy is a treasure trove of old tools and agricultural and metal working artefacts.
