A thriving suburb southeast of the city centre, originally known as Easter Duddingston, the area has undergone significant development in recent years to create a diverse and leafy residential area, popular with families and professionals alike. The area has retained extensive public parks and playing fields and boasts a leisure centre with a wealth of sport and fitness facilities for every taste, with a gym, fitness classes, racquet sports courts and outdoor pitches for football, rugby, and hockey. Residents of the area enjoy excellent services and amenities as well as a range of independent shops, local businesses and takeaways, with an Asda Superstore at the Jewel (1.6 miles/ 6 minute drive) or Tesco Extra at Musselburgh (2.7 miles/ 9 minute drive). More extensive shopping, leisure facilities and eateries are provided at Fort Kinnaird retail park, which is just a short walk (5 minutes) away. The area is within the catchment for nursery and primary schooling at Castleview Primary School and is well placed for easy access to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary and new Sick Kids Hospital. An extensive public bus network offers swift and frequent links across the capital, day and night. Owing to its south-easterly location, this area allows easy access to the A1 and Edinburgh City Bypass and the train station at Newcraighall with a regular service to the City Centre and the Scottish Borders.
