In ancient Black Castle’s shadow; the kirk, its heart.

North Sea in the distance but firmly on the ground.

Hid among the Lammermuirs, Oldhamstocks will be found.

Oldhamstocks is a small village on the edge of the county of East Lothian. 

The purpose of this website is to keep the local community and anyone else who is interested, up to date with all things Oldhamstocks!
