Marchmont is one of Edinburgh’s most fashionable and sought-after suburbs, situated just southwest of the city centre. Renowned for its cosmopolitan atmosphere, independent retail and café culture, the area enjoys proximity to the city centre and the open green spaces of The Meadows and Bruntsfield Links. For leisure and nightlife, Bruntsfield and neighbouring Morningside boast some of Edinburgh’s best cafes, bars, restaurants, and bistros, plus an independent cinema and a theatre. Its diverse range of independent shops and boutiques are supplemented with a choice of express supermarkets, including a Sainsbury’s Local and a Tesco Metro, plus a Waitrose store and an M&S Food in Morningside. Bruntsfield is known for its high-quality state schooling at both primary and secondary level. It is ideally situated for access to tertiary education at Napier University, The University of Edinburgh and Edinburgh College of Art. Whilst Bruntsfield is ideally placed for exploring the city on foot, the area is very well served by public transport and benefits from extensive walkways and cycle paths. Owing to its southerly location, Bruntsfield is just a short drive from Edinburgh City Bypass, which in turn allows access to Edinburgh Airport and the M8/M9/M90 motorway network.
