Liberton Living:
Local Area Lifestyle

Liberton’s location on Edinburgh’s south side helps you make the most of a number of nearby neighbourhoods, which are some of the city’s finest. These include genteel Morningside, villagey Bruntsfield and studenty Newington.

There’s an abundance of green spaces nearby, from the Braid Hills (which the first floor apartments look out onto) to the Pentland Hills, plus eight golf clubs within walking distance.

Edinburgh city centre offers a wealth of prime shopping, from John Lewis and other high street names to the venerable Harvey Nichols to dozens of indie boutiques, and the designer haven that is Multrees Walk.

There are no fewer than four Michelin-starred restaurants to enjoy in Edinburgh and a vast array of cosy pubs and independent restaurants covering cuisine from all corners of the globe.

Community facilities in Liberton include a bowling green and church / community centre. There are decent local amenities and local shops on Lasswade Road itself, with a number of good primary and secondary schools nearby.
