Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Friendly, quiet street with very nice neighbours, close to beach and prom.
Lots of walks nearby. With good bus/train links directly into the centre of Edinburgh. Or alternatively drive
East to access the beautiful East Lothian countryside, particularly good for golf enthusiasts, or keen walkers, castles and clifftop walks all within 30 minutes drive.

A short bus/train ride or drive to Historic Edinburgh, 'the Athens of the North', full of fantastic cultural heritage as well as brilliant nightlife. Regularly voted one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Edinburgh Castle is Scotlands number 1 tourist destination. You must also visit the beatiful Botantical gardens and Edinburgh Zoo is great for the kids - go and see the pandas. The National Scottish museum is a great day out, or visit the recently constructed Scottish Parliament building for an organised tour. Or why not a ghost tour of the old town.
