Just north of the city centre and bordered by exclusive Trinity and cosmopolitan Stockbridge, the leafy suburb of Inverleith is cherished for its open green spaces, grand period villas and scenic views of Edinburgh's iconic skyline. Predominantly a residential area, Inverleith offers a wealth of outdoor and recreational activities, particularly beautiful Inverleith Park, which boasts sports pitches, allotments, tennis courts and a model-boating pond. Inverleith is also home to The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh: 72-acres of beautiful gardens, magnificent glasshouses and stunning views, plus exhibition spaces, cafés and restaurants. Thanks to its central location, Inverleith is within easy reach of excellent local services and amenities in Stockbridge and Canonmills (including a superstore), while the attractions of the city centre are just a short walk or bus journey away. Inverleith offers primary and secondary schooling within its catchment area and is ideally placed for some of the capital's most prestigious independent schools, including The Edinburgh Academy and Fettes College. Inverleith is served by fantastic public transport routes travelling across the city, and also enjoys proximity to Ferry Road, which in turn provides easy links to Edinburgh Airport, the Forth Road Bridge and the M8/M9 motorway network.
