About the neighbourhood
The Edinbothy is within a modern, well-maintained residential development in Greenbank. It is a peaceful residential area with a direct bus in to the city centre.
The popular area of Morningside is 10 mins walk away offering a host of restaurants, pubs, coffee shops and supermarkets including MandS Simply Food and Waitrose. Morningside is also home to numerous independent shops proudly offering a wide range of products from the cheesemonger to the home-brew store and local arts and crafts!
There are several golf courses very close to the flat, lots of walks through parks, forests and up local hills. The nearby Pentlands offer further exploration and a Snowsports Centre, offering dry slope skiing year-round.
The beautiful coastal villages and beaches of East Lothian, countryside of Fife...
Getting around
The Number 23 bus has a fabulous route running South to North Edinburgh taking you past The National Museum, The Royal Mile, George Street & Princes Street (for retail therapy) & on to the Botanical Gardens. Best thing is that the closest stop is 50yards from The Edinbothy's front door! You don't need a car to experience all Edinburgh city centre has to offer but if you do have a vehicle to explore further afield there is no shortage of free parking outside the front door!
