Bruntsfield is a district located within the city of Edinburgh, Scotland. Situated on the southwest side of the city, Bruntsfield dates back to the late 1300s. It historically began as part of the property surrounding the home of a wealthy family. Since its early beginnings, the area has grown considerably and now houses numerous schools, restaurants, and shops in its diverse residential community. While Bruntsfield has become a modern community, it has retained its old charm. Some of the historic private mansions from the district’s early times have remained to this day.
