Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Edinburgh is one of the world's most beautiful and historic cities. In August there is the famous Edinburgh Festival. We are lucky enough to live in a desirable neighbourhood of Edinburgh with mainly 19th century houses. Beautiful Botanic Gardens and Inverleith Park with tennis courts, a play area and a large pond are just a five minute walk from the house. It takes only 15 minutes on the bus to reach the heart of the city and buses are every 5-10 minutes.. it takes less than five minutes on foot to reach, shops, a pub and cafes. The back garden is spacious and secluded with a fabulous view of Edinburgh castle. Silvernowes beach can be reached by car within ten minutes and the Pentland Hills are about 30 minutes away.
