Situated at the southern edge of Midlothian and extending into East Lothian, this group of small hamlets and communities has had a more significant past than is evident today. Soutra was the site of a mediaeval hospital, which employed (for its time) cutting-edge medical and social techniques. However, Soutra Aisle, a small stone building, is the only visible relic of a church on the site. There is a burial ground surrounding Fala church and a modern cemetery in the nearby village of Blackshiels.
