Old Dalkeith Road
Ten minutes’ walk from the Edinburgh Bioquarter and the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, Manor Wood is situated in one of the most convenient areas of the capital for access to both the city and the wider world. Princes Street is less than four miles away, and the development is just one and three quarter miles from the City of Edinburgh Bypass, bringing the whole of the central belt into reach. Edinburgh Airport is approximately 13 miles away. Frequent bus services run past the development, linking it with the city centre and travelling on to Newhaven, Baberton, Fort Kinnaird shopping centre and Rosewell. One of the city’s night buses also serves the area.
The selection of shops nearby caters for all everyday needs. Half a mile away there is a small shopping precinct with a convenience store, a popular home bakery and a large Co-op incorporating a Post Office. Within approximately a mile, there are also Aldi, Morrisons, Lidl and Iceland supermarkets, a newsagent and a pharmacy. The development is also within easy reach of the major shopping centres at Cameron Toll and Fort Kinnaird, with their wide choice of superstores.
Edinburgh is one of the country’s premium shopping destinations. Celebrated names like Harvey Nichols and Jenners contrast with local traders, small antique shops and the characterfilled individuality of areas such as Newington, Portobello and Morningside. Alongside a superb diversity of bars, restaurants and nightclubs, the city has an outstanding offering of museums and galleries, theatres, cinemas and live music venues. The vibrant, diverse year-round programme of classical concerts, pub gigs, drama and special events becomes even more exciting during the city’s Festivals.
Nearby fitness facilities include a gym at Danderhall Leisure Centre and a swimming pool, gym and sports hall at Gracemount. Manor Wood is in easy reach of several golf courses including Liberton Golf Club. For relaxed walking or cycling, Holyrood Park, Blackford Hill, the Hermitage of Braid and the Pentland Hills are all in easy reach.
The local library at Moredun offers free wi-fi and other services, and hosts a number of activity groups for children and young people. Local Primary and Secondary schools are nearby. Healthcare provision in the immediate area includes GP services at Ferniehill Surgery, Brite Dental in Gilmerton Road and the comprehensive A&E facilities of Edinburgh Royal Infirmary.
