Drylaw is a residential area in Edinburgh, situated between the neighbourhoods of Blackhall and Granton. It goes backs to 1296, when it was first recorded, but actually the area's development didn't start until much later. Today Drylaw is a small, quiet area of council housing with a few local shops and a good community centre with various projects and activities for children and young people. The local pubs and beautiful footpaths along Leith River and down to the Ocean Terminal can provide you with great ways to spend a few days in the area.
- Walk along Leith Walkway in Drylaw, Edinburgh, a charming path alongside the Leith River, and see the Shore, Ocean Terminal, and Royal Yacht Britannia.
- Spend the evening in Drylaw's local traditional pub, The Telford Arms, and enjoy their specialty of fish and chips.
- Take part in the classes offered at the Drylaw Neighbourhood Centre of Edinburgh, such as cooking and gardening courses, but book early as they are highly popular and tend to sell out fast.
Lothian Buses are the best way to move around in Edinburgh, and Line 34 takes you straight to Drylaw from the city centre. You can also get a taxi from the city or Edinburgh Turnhouse, and the taxi driver will no doubt help you with your luggage as they always tend to be very helpful and polite. If you're stuck somewhere with no transportation, give a city cab company a call and they will send a driver in just five minutes. Unfortunately, there is no train connection from the airport or the city centre to Drylaw at the moment.
