We live in Corstorphine which is ten minutes from both Edinburgh airport and the city center. We are ideally situated for exploring Edinburgh's many attractions as well as being a ten minute car journey from the M8 and M9 connecting to Glasgow and Stirling in less than an hour. The Forth Road Bridge is also ten minutes away connecting you to the North and East of Scotland. We are close to a main bus route which offers frequent services into the city center. We are a five minute walk from Edinburgh Zoo and Corstorphine is served by a variety of good quality restaurants which are family friendly.
