Marchmont… A tranquil community

MarchmontWith just a twenty-minute amble through the leafy Meadows to Prince’s Street, a warm community, an array of delicious cuisines and easy access to both Edinburgh and Napier universities, it’s easy to see why Marchmont is such a desirable place to live.


Historically Marchmont was created as a planned, middle-class suburb with rows of four-storey tenements and though the outlying villas never came to light, the architecture is still of interest with the Warrender Swim Centre boasting a mosaic from the 1900s.


Fans of Ian Rankin may be interested to note that though the author himself does not reside in Marchmont, Detective Inspector John Rebus, the fictional hero of many of his books lives on Arden Street.


The area is within the catchment of both James Gillespie’s Primary and Secondary School along with Sciennes Primary School and St Thomas Of Aquin’s High School.

Recreation, food and bars

Marchmont has all the aspects of a village, making it an ideal place to either enjoy the quiet or to bring up a family. It is tranquil, there is a sense of community and you’ll find friendly, welcoming shops and bars to visit time after time. With the heart of Edinburgh just a short walk away, you’ll be enjoying the best of both worlds.

You may wish to start your day with breakfast at the cannily named Toast. The restaurant provides great brunches and, on sunny days, tables outside to sit at, sipping your coffee and watching the world go by.

After a day in the park it is time to unwind with a drink. Argyle Bar offers some good cask ales and tasty food and, along with its local staff and patrons, you’ll soon be feeling right at home. If you are looking for a little more excitement, there is always Cellar Monkey downstairs, which caters to the area’s student crowd.


Being a quieter area there is less traffic, so public transport isn’t as available as in the city centre. Saying that, with a regular bus service and both the tram and trains on Prince’s Street a twenty-minute stroll away it is still easy to get around.

If you are looking for a quiet village with a close community but with good access to Edinburgh city centre, find out more about what Marchmont can offer you.
