Additional Location Information

Broompark has the best of both worlds: an almost rural location yet within the city, only minutes from the city bypass and a short bus ride or drive by car into the city centre. A 15- to 20-minute walk connects you with the number 11 bus, which runs into the city centre and all the way on to Leith and the berth of the Royal Yacht Brittania. Alternatively, to avoid city-centre parking charges, there are a selection of buses for the Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle and city centre shopping areas with free car parking at local bus stops. This means that all the attractions of Edinburgh's Old Town and New Town are just a short bus ride away.

Located on the Braid Hills, there are great walks, golf on the municipal golf course 300 metres away or on the adjacent driving range at Braid Hills Golf Centre. Blackford Hill, a little nearer the city centre, is home to the Royal Observatory. Not far is Craigmillar Castle, one of the oldest tower houses in Scotland, with links to Mary Queen of Scots and a strategic location with commanding views over the city. There are also some fantastic longer walks and biking opportunities in the nearby Pentland Hills and around the famous Arthurs Seat.

As befits the countryside feel of the location, pony trekking is available at the nearby Tower Farm Riding School and Stables, with many scenic rides, much of them off road. Broompark is a short drive from Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, and other Edinburgh hospitals, so is a good base for any visiting medics. The Stable Bar at Mortonhall is a short walk or drive away, with its sunny courtyard in summer, roaring fire in winter, and good food and drink all year round.
