Quality of life is about the details of everyday living. From the little things, like knowing the nearest place to pick up a pint of milk, to more important matters like finding the right school or having a health centre nearby, you need to know that the community you’re moving to will support you and your family, as well as being a pleasant place to live. So here’s some useful information about the area around South Gilmerton Brae
Gilmerton has good public transport connections with easy access to the wealth of historic and cultural attractions that Edinburgh offers. Buses on routes 11 and 31 stop a few minutes walk from the development, providing direct access to Morningside, Leith, Newington and Corstorphine as well as the city centre, and both have night services. In addition, the development is just five minutes drive from the City Bypass, providing fast transit to the airport, Fife and the whole of the central belt. The new Royal Infirmary and the University campuses at King’s Buildings and Little France are all in easy reach.
The area’s local attractions range from the intriguing Gilmerton Cove, a man-made underground complex almost 300 years old, to the delightful Butterfly and Insect World and, in complete contrast, the Edinburgh Combat Challenge laser adventure game. Midlothian Snowsports Centre and the Pentland Hills are nearby, and there are several green spaces within a few minutes walk such as Drum Parkwith its children’s playground, and the Burdiehouse Burn Valley Local Nature Reserve where herons, dippers and woodpeckers can often be seen.
The recently refurbished Gracemount Leisure Centre with its 25m pool, fully equipped gym, fitness studios and sports pitches is around ten minutes walk away. There are four golf courses within three miles,King’s Acre and Liberton being the nearest, and other local amenities include Valley Park Community Centre, where there are regular sessions covering craft activities, mother and baby groups,dance and gardening.
There is a local shopping area at Drum Street, half a mile away, with Iceland and Lidl supermarkets and a large convenience store, and another close to Gracemount Leisure Centre with a chemist, a post office and branches of Scotmid Co-op and Tesco Express. The major retail park at Straiton, with its Sainsbury superstore, Argos and other national chains, can be reached via a pleasant half-hour walking route.

What our customers have to say...
“With Miller Homes, it’s the small things that make a big difference.”
“The town house we chose suits our family and our needs.”
We love the square footage we have. The kids use the top floor, with two spacious bedrooms and the master bathroom, and on the middle floor we use the master bedroom with en-suite. We also enjoy the lounge on that floor that we use in the night time. In the day the ground floor is a great space for preparing food, sitting down in the dining room and eating, or just relaxing in the lounge and watching TV.
“Miller Homes will do anything to the house within reason.”
I quite liked that there was flexibility in terms of being able to pick different options. We had a lot of choice, so we enjoyed picking our kitchen, worktops and tiles. It’s nice to be able to personalise your home to you, and the finish, in terms of the taps and the range of tiles, was nicer than I saw on other developments with other house builders.
“It’s nicer to go to the people on site, rather than having to search for someone in the Yellow Pages.”
They’re on hand to sort any wee thing out, and they even sorted out some extra things, like feeding a cable through to the garage as we were moving in. It’s something I should have done myself, but when I asked the guy to help me out they had someone on hand to do it. That was appreciated.
I’d definitely recommend Miller Homes...
...because it was a good, easy, all round process. Everyone was there if I needed them or if I had any questions and we are really happy with the house.
