Bonaly is a quaint suburb located a short six kilometres south-west of the city centre of Edinburgh. Picturesque pasturelands, open moorlands, and wooded areas enhance Bonaly’s appeal to visitors and nature-lovers. Situated within the Colinton conservation area, the town retains much of its old village charm with numerous small specialty shops and many original buildings still intact. The tranquility of the Water of Leith and nearby Colinton Dell just to the north contributes to the town’s pleasing atmosphere of old-world charm and natural beauty.
- Commune with nature at Bonaly Country Park, which has gorgeous landscapes comprised of woodland, heather moorlands, and reservoirs and offers great views of the city of Edinburgh as well as Fife, the Lothians, and Firth of Forth.
- Check out the Bonaly Tower, the country residence of Lord Cockburn where he entertained Edinburgh literati and was once the centre of the Bonaly village that was destroyed.
- Observe the stars by spending an evening in the camping fields at the Bonaly Outdoor Centre, also used by Scouts and other youth groups and features a stone bathing pool fed by natural waters.
