If you use ///what3words, our exact location can be found using:


Historically, there has been markets held in the village since 1631 when Linton became a Burgh of Regality. Thousands of sheep and cattle were sold annually at markets held at the present day Lower Green, Lyne Park, and later next to the Brig House Inn (now Medwyn House) near the West Linton Golf Course. 



Free on-street parking is available nearby.


Note: Heavy Goods Vehicles are not permitted on Deanfoot Road between School Brae and Main Street (because they cannot negotiate the T-junction at Main St. without getting jammed). Access via School Brae (from the A702) is recommended.

We'd like to thank the West Linton Post Office on Main Street, who offer cash withdrawal for free. The Co-op in West Linton also has a free-to-use Cashpoint machine near the checkout. Most vendors offer contactless payments.

The Old Tollhouse Tea Shop, located at the south side of Lower Green, serve fresh coffee and tea plus delicious goodies after 10am.

In the event of snow or severe weather, the market may be cancelled or operate with a reduced number of vendors.
