From its market town location, with the River Almond just a few yards away, it is hard to believe that this attractive development occupies one of the most advantageous locations in the central belt. With the M9 a few minutes drive away and exceptionally fast access to Edinburgh
Airport, the M8 and the new Queensferry Crossing, this peaceful development of two, three and four bedroom homes presents a unique opportunity to combine a beautiful setting with an outstanding convenience.
Just one and a half miles from the Newbridge Roundabout of the M9 and less than four miles from the Forth crossings, the development offers extremely easy travel into Edinburgh, Stirling, Glasgow and Fife.
Edinburgh Airport is just over four miles away, and several First bus services pass through Kirkliston. Lothian Buses have also introduced a service linking the town with the Gyle Shopping Centre, Edinburgh Park and the Riccarton campus.
Education & Health
Kirkliston Primary, a popular and successful non-denominational school around ten minutes walk from the development, is a feeder primary for Queensferry Community High School. There is also a health centre with GP services and a dental surgery within a few minutes walk.
Newliston House, fifteen minutes walk away, is a beautiful Robert Adam mansion with magnificent gardens and the added appeal, on Sundays, of a passenger-carrying miniature steam railway, and Hopetoun House, possibly Scotland’s finest stately home, is five miles away. The waterfront attractions of nearby South Queensferry include boat trips, a museum and choice of excellent bars and restaurants such as the Orocco Pier Hotel and the 3 Bridges with its magnificent terrace views of the Forth bridges.
Kirkliston has a large Co-op store, newsagents and convenience stores, and local services include the fashionable Mr Fella & Me Bella hairdressers. Glen Almond is also in easy reach of Edinburgh’s Gyle Shopping Centre and the capital’s comprehensive choice of shopping. Craigie’s Farm, an excellent farm shop and delicatessen three miles from the development, also has a café, woodland walks and children’s play facilities.
There are recycling facilities for glass bottles and jars, paper and cardboard, plastic bottles, aerosols, packaging and textiles in the car park of Kirkliston Leisure
Centre. Larger items such as white goods, computers, garden waste and televisions are accepted at Broxburn Recycling Centre, a little under four miles away.
Leisure & Recreation
Kirkliston Leisure Centre incorporates a comprehensively equipped gym, a sports hall and excellent outdoor facilities including all-weather floodlit pitches and a grass football pitch. The world-class Edinburgh International Climbing Arena at Ratho and the sailing and water sports amenities at Port Edgar are both within three miles, and local golf clubs include Dundas Parks, a nine-hole course in the grounds of the historic Dundas Castle. There is also a local library in the town.
