Gorebridge is a former mining settlement in Midlothian, located 12 miles south east of Edinburgh.
The town developed in the 17th and 18th centuries around coal mining and gunpowder production and became a holiday resort in the 19th century. It is home to Gorebridge Station, one of the stops on the Borders Railway train line.
