In contrast to the modernity of downtown Edinburgh, the suburb of Comiston maintains a rustic and more traditional atmosphere, from the Victorian homes along the historic route of Comiston Road to the charming paraphernalia of clock works and iconic religious structures. The city of Edinburgh itself is the destination for tourists interested in seeing what is referred to as Old Europe, Comiston Road connecting Edinburgh and the south west regions of Scotland being a perfect example. Some attractions within the Comiston neighbourhood include the Dominion, the Holy Corner and the legendary Church Hill Theatre.
- The Morningside Clock is a celebrated landmark within Comiston. Visitors to this lush, spacious region should enjoy a leisurely walk along Canaan, Eden and Jordan lanes completed with numerous structures built in dedication to religious themes.
- A visit to Edinburgh wouldn’t be complete without a tour of Comiston’s Gothic style buildings, timeless Victorian mansions, century-old Buddhist and Yoga worship centres and retail centres for folk art or musical instruments.
- Engage in a round of golf tournaments in the well-manicured and picturesque fields beside the Braid Burn Valley Park, home to cherry blossoms, dog walks and meadow footpaths.
A visit to Comiston’ Brad Burn Valley Park requires less than a two kilometre journey from Morningside Junction. Travellers will first arrive at the A702 Pentland Terrace where they can take public transport. Commuter bus services on either 11 or 15 routes are ideal for people interested in riding along Comiston Road and Pentland Terrace. Alternatively, tourists are advised to board buses bearing numbers 5 and 16 that operate along Greenbank Crescent. Morningside railway services are also a reliable mode of transport. Passenger trains occasionally pass through Morningside, which is approximately 1.5 kilometres from Comiston.
