The town centre:
The drive/bus ride to central Edinburgh and the West end takes you to within footsteps of Edinburgh Caste. You will also travel through Morningside and Bruntsfield with their fabulous selection of speciality shops, restaurants, cafes etc- well worth spending a couple of mornings/afternoons to browse.
If driving to the centre, we recommend that you park on the top floor of the open top multi-storey car park at Kings Stables Road (guess where it got its name from?) and enjoy the wonderful view up to Edinburgh Castle. Then take a short cut to the very centre of town, Princes St, through the famous Princes St Gardens which is just a 5 minute walk. This route will take you past various entertainment in the West End Gardens suitable for tots to teens with a chance to watch out for squirrels along the way.
The House and Garden has view towards the largest outdoor dry ski slope in Europe at Hillend Sports Centre, ideal for the more adventurous - See http://www.midlothian.gov.uk//Topic.aspx?TopicId=86
