A quiet suburb of Edinburgh, the Clermiston area has many hotels and restaurants on its outskirts. The old campus of Queen Margaret College is also here, and is now being developed into additional housing since the college moved to Musselburgh. Clermiston is a quiet, friendly neighbourhood that began its life as hunting grounds for wealthy Scottish landowners, then served as a dairy farm, and was later turned into city housing in the 1950s. Now, it's a pleasant area with a football pitch, a diverse economic and ethnic background, and a range of hotels and restaurants for any budget.
- Have a spicy (or mild) dinner at the Eastern Pavilion Restaurant, one of the best Indian restaurants in all of Edinburgh.
- For a luxurious night’s stay, go to MD's Bed and Breakfast on Hillview – the friendly owners and good food will make you feel at home and can revitalize even the weariest travellers.
- Travel just over the Clermiston borders to Corstorphine and visit the Edinburgh Zoo to see the koalas and the giant pandas.
Clermiston is bounded by the large St. John's Road arterial to the south, Clermiston Road on the east, and DrumBrae South on the west. It's just east of central Edinburgh – far enough out that it remains a quiet neighbourhood and close enough to the attractions that you can get around easily. The closest rail station is 2 miles away, and buses run through the town regularly. Several "traffic free" cycling routes are available throughout Edinburgh. Travel to and from Clermiston is relatively easy and renting a car is not necessary to visit this lovely area.
