About the location

Our house is located in Corstorphine - a well known suburb of west Edinburgh. It is residential in nature with a large Tesco extra, a High Street with local shops and an out of town shopping centre at the Gyle - all within walking distance.

It is well served by regular public transport, by buses, trams and trains from South Gyle/Gateway.
In Corstorphine, there are quite a few local restaurants, fast food outlets, pubs and parks but our street is quiet and residential. It is a cul de sac of 100 houses.

Getting into Edinburgh City Centre takes about 20 minutes and we are well placed for the airport and motorways to Glasgow and the rest of Scotland.
