Next, let’s look at why you might need a 0131 area code.

Where is area code 0131?

Area code 0131 primarily operates in the city of Edinburgh and its surrounding areas in Scotland, United Kingdom. This includes locations such as Musselburgh, Dalkeith, Bonnyrigg, Livingston, Loanhead, Penicuik, South Queensferry, and other nearby towns and villages.

The 0131 area code was established on May 16, 1995, replacing the previous 031 area code, to meet the growing demand for telephone numbers in the Edinburgh area and surrounding regions.
