Baberton is a residential suburb of Edinburgh, Scotland, situated close to the City Bypass, Wester Hailes railway station, and Edinburgh Airport for travel convenience. Baberton saw a huge rise in its population in the 1960s as it became a popular place for city workers to buy houses. Today, residents and visitors to the suburb can enjoy nearby golf courses and spacious green parklands, as well cinemas, casinos, and a choice of restaurants in the area, making Baberton a self-contained retreat from the city. The Heriot-Watt University campus is also located in the vicinity.

- Take a 15-minute stroll from Baberton to Pentlands Hills Regional Park, which was sculpted over the centuries by glaciers, features interesting archaeological remains, and is considered one of Edinburgh’s best parks.
