Craigleith is in the northern part of Edinburgh, Scotland, only 3 kilometres from the city centre. The quality rock quarried from Craigleith has been used for the construction of local buildings, as well as the Edinburgh Castle, the Holyrood Palace, and other prestigious Scottish structures. Though the quarry no longer exists, the site of the quarry has been preserved and may be visited at the Craigleith Shopping Park. While visitors are drawn to the local architecture, Craigleith is also close to other Edinburgh attractions, including a museum of art and several public parks.

  • Stop by the Craigleith Shopping Park to view the only visible remnants of the old rock quarry on Craiglieth Hill, located just behind Sainsbury's Superstore.
  • Explore the Scottish National Gallery of Fine Art in Edinburgh, which offers free admission to its collections, exhibits, and sculpture parks, and features a gift shop and restaurant on campus.
  • Relax in Edinburgh’s beautiful Dean Gardens, just minutes from Craigleith Hill, to enjoy the beautiful St. Bernard’s Well and The Dean Bridge.

Buses stop at the Craigleith Retail Park and other sites throughout the district, including many locations along Queensferry Road and Craigleigh Road. For visitors with rental cars, streetside parking is available along many of the roadways within the city. The Lothian buses have regular routes throughout Edinburgh, as well as express and night transport services that arrive at stops every 15 minutes. Visitors planning extensive travel within Edinburgh will find that a One Ticket for unlimited travel on city bus or railway services is a convenient, cost-effective public transportation option.
