The suburb of Blackhall lies in the northwest of Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland. The suburb is defined by conservative, religious and close-knit communities, and is served by the Craigleith/Blackhall community council. Blackhall is mainly a residential area with adequate facilities such as a library, local schools and bowling club. A huge number of housing infrastructures in the area were built during the inter war period. However, newer housing projects are being undertaken around the Corstorphine Hill's northern slope. The Hillhouse Road has a couple of charming shops that attract visitors' interest.
- Go for an exciting nature walk exploring the Ravelston Woods, which is a local nature reserve in Blackhall, accessible through the Ravelston Park.
- Head over to the Royal Botanic Garden of Edinburgh where you can enjoy one the finest botanic gardens in the world; established in 1670 and also features exquisite glasshouses and contemporary art exhibitions at the Inverleith House.
- Visit the Lauriston Castle, which was established in 1926 in Edinburgh and provides a comprehensive collection of precious Scottish items like Crossley Wool Mosaics, Blue Johns ornaments, Sheffield Plate, as well as a highly regarded Japanese Friendship garden.
The main public transportation that visitors can use to reach the Blackhall is the city bus service. Daily bus routes cover the suburb's vicinity, and visitors can get off any of the bus stops along the Hillhouse Road, Telford Road and Strachan Road. The closest stops to the suburb centre are the Blackhall Lounge stop and the Blackhall stop at Whitehall Court. The nearest train station to the suburb is the Haymarket railway station, about 3 kilometres from Blackhall. The station serves long-distance commuter routes connecting Edinburgh to neighbouring cities and towns at the west and north of Scotland.
