With its tree-lined streets, grand detached villas and enchanting gardens, Merchiston is among the most exclusive residential districts in the capital.
Its tranquil ambience belies its ultra-convenient setting less than two miles southwest of the city centre, adjacent to the equally desirable districts of Bruntsfield and Morningside. Merchiston is a favoured location for all ages and life stages, owing its blend of beautiful green spaces, fantastic local amenities and close-knit community feel. Bruntsfield and Morningside – the home of Edinburgh’s café culture – both offer a wealth of independent shops and businesses, which are supplemented with a Waitrose and an M&S Simply Food store. Foodies are well catered for with an array of cafés, pubs, bars and restaurants to suit every taste and occasion; residents can also indulge in a spot of culture in Morningside, which boasts a boutique cinema and a theatre. There’s also no shortage of sport and fitness facilities to choose from, including canoeing and rowing on Union Canal, family activities at Merchiston Tennis & Bowling Club, outdoor sports pitches at Harrison Park or swimming, a gym and fitness classes at The Galleon Sports Centre. Merchiston is known for its excellent state schools, which include Craiglockhart Primary School and Tynecastle High School, as well as its prestigious independent schools, namely George Watson’s College, The Edinburgh Rudolf Steiner School and Merchiston Castle School. In addition to frequent bus links, residents also benefit from regular rail services between Edinburgh and Glasgow from Slateford or Haymarket stations, and swift access to Edinburgh City Bypass, Edinburgh Airport and the M8/M9 motorway network.
