About the neighbourhood
Locally the seaside town of Portobello with beach promenade and host of restaurants and bars is just a 10-15 minute walk away. Figgate Park offers beautiful vistas to Arthur's Seat (dormant volcano in the city), duck pond and garden walk (10 mins from St Margaret's). Portobello 9 hole golf course is located just to the rear of St Margaret's offering even the novice golfer a good, fun day out. Musselburgh with its harbour and promenade are just 2 miles down the road and the port of Leith just 2 miles in the other direction - all well worth a visit!
