Getting to Ferguson Park
Lothian Buses 49 is a frequent service from Edinburgh city centre to Rosewell. There are stops on Princes Street and North Bridge. During peak times, some route 31 buses run to Rosewell. Alternatively, and for a quicker route, get any 31 bus to Bonnyrigg and change to the 49 at Bonnyrigg Toll. A single ticket currently costs £1.70, while an unlimited day ticket is £4.00.
Leave the City of Edinburgh Bypass at Sheriffhall roundabout, taking the exit signposted A7 Galashiels. Drive south until you reach the Eskbank roundabout. Take the fourth exit, entering Bonnyrigg. Drive straight through Bonnyrigg, along the A6904. When you reach a small roundabout, take the second exit, continuing on the A6904. Turn left into Rosewell and Ferguson Park is situated on the left hand side, about 400 yards into the village set back from Carnethie Street.
From the West: with a bit of local knowledge, leave the Edinburgh City Bypass at Lasswade junction and go by Lasswade and Poltonhall to avoid Bonnyrigg.
The nearest train station is Eskbank. From there, it is a short walk to Tesco where the 49 bus stops. Alternatively, a taxi will cost around £20 during the day from Edinburgh Waverley.
Eddie Thomson Lounge
Eddie Thomson was a native of Rosewell who played for Whitehill and went on to captain Hearts for 4 seasons, before moving to Aberdeen and then emigrating to Australia where he starred for Sydney City. Tragically, Eddie died of cancer in 2003 at the age of 55.
The Lounge has a well stocked bar with attractive prices. It is open at weekends and welcomes visiting supporters on matchdays.
Why Ferguson Park?
The Junior club, Rosewell Rosedale, used to play at a park in the centre of the village, just to the south of St Matthew's RC Church, where Prestonhall Cres now stands.
After the war this land was taken over for housebuilding, and the club moved over to the other side of Carnethie Street to the current location. The turf was provided by a farmer named Ferguson, at Stonefieldhill, up near Edgelaw reservoir.
