This charming neighbourhood of Edinburgh is situated just off the city centre, on the west side, between Murrayfield and Corstorphine. The area's name originated from the Balgreen House, which has now turned into the Balgreen School and which stands in the centre of the area. The suburb features the Water of Leith running right through it, connecting this part of town with Stockbridge and making it an area absolutely worth visiting if you're coming to Edinburgh for a few days and you have time to see more than just the major attractions.
- Take a stroll alongside the Water of Leith and down to Ocean Terminal, where you can check out the colourful shops and enjoy a beautiful romantic dinner by the shore.
- Visit the library of Balgreen, in Edinburgh, one of the most well known libraries in the city, famous for its large collection of books.
- Take your family to the Balgreen park, in Edinburgh, where the locals meet up on a daily basis and where kids can enjoy taking part in a number of different sports and activities.
Getting to Balgreen is easy as the area is very well connected and near the city centre. Get any bus from Corstorphine Road or lines 1, 2, 22, and 38 from the city centre. If you're coming from the airport, take bus line 100 to get from Edinburgh Turnhouse to the Waverley Train Station and from there, hop onto a bus to get to Balgreen. There are also taxis available at all times and from most parts of the city, so if you're travelling heavy, there will always be a driver willing to lend you a hand.
