New step-change primary school for Calderwood
New nursery for the village
Bright modern spaces for optimal learning
Everything you need, in one place.
Along with these natural amenities, a new exemplar primary school and early years nursery are currently being constructed. This will serve the community, not only as an educational facility, but for public use also. A new village square will be built, adjacent to the school and nursery, to provide essential services.
Calderwood’s setting is one of the key features that sets it apart from all other developments. The 230 acres of beautiful country park surrounding the village offers a beautiful public realm – waiting to be explored and enjoyed.
The Country Park is contained in a sunken valley, with the river Almond meandering through it. The park has its own sheltered climate and instills peace and harmony in all those that walk or cycle through its enchanting network of paths and open spaces.
Calderwood’s landscape offers scenic beauty and opportunities to connect with nature. Our plans have tried to find a harmony between conservation and creation. Conservation of areas where nature is self-governing, independent from human direction and control and areas of creation, establishing new habitat and eco-systems.

Establishing a community orchard
located within the heart of Calderwood is our Community Garden. Calderwood residents are working hard alongside Stirling Developments to make this community asset thrive with flora and fauna.
Peter Stirling (Managing Director – Stirling Developments) has gifted strawberry plants from his farm in Arbroath. He is excited in seeing the garden flourish with activity and growing over the coming months.
Want to volunteer your green fingers and get involved? Get in touch with the ‘Calderwood Residents Group, East Calder’ through their Facebook page.
We believe at the heart of Calderwood lies our community. Several events have taken place including competitions for children, guy building and fireworks night.
Our local Calderwood Café has joined in with this and recently adopted a polar bear through WWF as a prize.
Each year Stirling Developments plant fruit trees in front gardens of new residents with the aim to create and greener healthier environment.
Calderwood Café opens
At the heart of the Calderwood community is our café. It is always great to see the café and beautifully landscaped garden area full of residents enjoying a coffee or lunch.
The café has also created jobs for local teenagers making it a true community asset.
From seeds to trees
The local primary school, along with the Almondell and Calderwood Country Park Ranger, walked the Country Park to learn and collect seeds. These seeds were then grown and planted in Calderwood to complement the enhanced landscaping.
We are proud to encourage these events where children’s outdoor learning is endorsed and the natural environment wins.
