Carrington is a small, rural village and civil parish in Midlothian, Scotland. It is located to the south of Bonnyrigg.

Church[edit]

The former Carrington Parish Church (of the Church of Scotland) was built in 1710-1711. It closed for regular worship in 1975 (and has been converted into business premises). The congregation united with nearby Cockpen Church to form the current Cockpen and Carrington Parish Church.

Arniston House[edit]
