Craigentinny is a suburb located east of Edinburgh in Scotland, close to the sea. Land in this area once belonged to William Miller, whose grandson, also William, was a politician and occupant of Craigentinny Castle in the early 19th century. The suburb has a wealth of historic monuments and impressive architecture dating back to the early 1600s and will please sightseers to the area. Since the 1920s, the area has undergone gradual yet significant transformation. It has become a quiet residential community with housing consisting mainly of bungalows.
- Visit Craigentinny Castle in Edinburgh and view this colossal remnant of classical architecture whilst discovering the background of its former occupants.
- Check out the Craigentinny Marbles, a large monument-like structure with intricate engravings that is actually the mausoleum of William Henry Miller, surprisingly now surrounded by residences.
- Partake in one of Edinburgh’s favourite pastimes and play a round of golf at the Craigentinny Golf Course, an 18-hole course with a view of Calton Hill’s historic monuments and Arthur's Seat.
The distance from the centre of Edinburgh to Craigentinny is approximately 4.5 kilometres, and the suburb is easily reachable from the city centre. If driving, take the Waterloo A1 and head east towards Calton Hill. Stay on the A1 for approximately three kilometres and join Portobello Rd/A1140 for one kilometre before turning left and proceeding to the heart of the suburb. The community is also served by a public bus system that connects to the city and the surrounding area. If coming from the Edinburgh airport, drivers can take Eastfield Road, join Glasgow road/A8, and proceed onwards to the City Bypass and follow the directions to the suburb.
