Craiglockhart is a scenic suburb of the Scottish capital city, located at its southwest edge. Its name, translated from Scottish Gaelic, means, “Rock of the High Loch,” perhaps referring to a loch of former times. It is a mainly residential area, with detached houses, some perched on terraced hills. During the Victorian era, Craiglockhart was home to more than a few hospitals, including the Royal Edinburgh Asylum. Some of the old hospital buildings are now part of prestigious Edinburgh Napier University. The area became incorporated into Edinburgh City in 1920.

  • Choose from great individual and group sessions that cater to beginners through experts at the local Tennis Centre.
  • Visit Craiglockhart Castle on the outskirts of Edinburgh. Only one and a half of its original four storeys, likely dating back to the 12th century, still stand.
  • Enjoy the natural beauty of the Edinburg area at The Friends of Craiglockhart Woods and Nature Trail. The trails cover hills, streams, and an abundance of trees.

Edinburgh Airport is located at Turnhouse in the city of Edinburgh, Scotland. From there visitors can access the Edinburgh suburb of Craiglockhart easily by taxi, since it is not far from the city centre. Some city buses offer daily service to the suburb, and it could be worth checking with the local tourist office for current schedules and routes. Travellers with rental cars will have an easy way to get around. There is no longer passenger train service into the Craiglockhart train station, although some local citizens are lobbying for its return.
