Blackford

Blackford is a suburb of Edinburgh, Scotland, located on the northern side of Braid Hills. Blackford Hill, which is comprised of Lower Devonian volcanic rocks, is the main geographical feature of interest of the area. The town is mostly made up of housing, with many Victorian and Edwardian age residences. This agreeable feature, along with the suburb’s proximity to attractions such as the Royal Observatory, Highland Spring Water, various distilleries, and hiking trails make it a highly sought after place to live. There are also plenty of attractions for visitors to enjoy in the area.

  • The Royal Observatory is located on Blackford Hill, south of the city. Its unique cylindrical copper exterior is interesting in itself. Visitors can attend scheduled evening public viewings.
  • The Hermitage of Braid and Blackford Hill Local Nature Reserve, outside of Edinburgh, rewards visitors with nature trails between a pond, wetlands, woodlands, and meadows. The Reserve can be easily accessed from Edinburgh or from the suburb.
  • You don’t have to be a bird watcher to appreciate the Phoenix Falconry. This school houses dozens of kinds of hawks, falcons, eagles and owls, situated on lovely Braco Castle Estate.

Scotland’s capital city of Edinburgh is a mere three kilometres north of Blackford. Edinburgh has a major airport, (airline code EDI), that offers flights in and out of much of the United Kingdom and Europe. From the airport a traveller can take a taxi or shuttle bus into Blackford, both of which can be hired at the airport. Although there have been recent campaigns to reopen the local railroad station, there currently is not railway service to the town. Once in the suburb the recommended and most convenient mode of transport is via taxicab.
