The much sought after Learmonth district lies just to the north west of the city centre, below Edinburgh’s fashionable West End, rubbing shoulders with Comely Bank and Stockbridge.

This very convenient location affords easy access to a wide range of commercial facilities, including a good selection of restaurants, bistros and bars. George Street, Princes Street and the Financial District are all within easy walking distance, while nearby Stockbridge with its unique ‘village’ atmosphere offers an excellent selection of local shops and a regular market every Sunday, close to the bridge crossing the Water of Leith. The Royal Botanical Garden and Inverleith Park are both within easy striking distance, while closer to home, the tree-lined Learmonth Gardens are on the door step. Regular bus services on Comely Bank Avenue and Road connect with many parts of the city, and nearby Queensferry Road offers a fast route to the west side of Edinburgh, with onward links to the M8, M9 and M90 motorway network, the city by-pass and the International Airport.
