Colinton is a charming suburb of Edinburgh, Scotland located approximately six kilometres from its bustling city centre. Colinton features a rich and storied history beginning millennia ago during the Middle Ages, when the area’s first church was erected in the 11th century. Colinton has maintained a famously vibrant population ever since, and the area boasts one-of-a-kind pieces of architecture imbued with the distinct flavour of the area’s traditional history. Today, Colinton is a world-class conservation centre featuring a large number of green spaces rich with abundant wildlife. Moreover, a variety of small speciality shops and quirky cafes have also contributed to Colinton’s distinct small town feel, meshed famously with the area’s ever-burgeoning holidaymaker appeal.

  • Stroll along the Colinton Dell’s paths, a protected area of Edinburgh featuring a diverse array of wildlife including amphibians, many species of bird, and the elusive roe deer.
  • Visit Spylaw Park, a beautiful public green space in Colinton that’s guarded by a large Victorian house standing at the front entrance.
  • Explore the Redford Barracks, an early 20th century military barracks in the heart of Colinton that was once the largest military installation in all of Edinburgh.

Colinton is located just outside of Edinburgh’s city centre, making the world-famous area easy to reach by both public transportation and on foot. Many bus routes operated by Lothian Buses travel throughout Colinton and stop at some of the area’s most bustling shopping centres and holidaymaker attractions. As a primarily green suburb, Colinton is famously fun and enjoyable to navigate on foot or by bicycle, and the area features a number of interesting bike trails, which provide a great way to intimately explore this charming suburb.
