Fairmilehead

The community of Fairmilehead in Edinburgh, Scotland dates back to Roman days. It has been fondly described by the writer Robert Louis Stevenson as a place where two roads meet by a hanging wood. Fairmilehead is no longer as pastoral as in Stevenson’s accounts—the city has come much too close. But visitors can still visit historically important sites like the Caiy Stane, a 2.7-meter Neolithic stone marker protected by the National Trust for Scotland. This charming area was once a holiday retreat for the well-to-do of Scotland, and it retains much history and many scenic nature spaces.

  • Take a swing at the Mortonhall Golf Club, which has a championship golf course founded in 1892 and is considered the city of Edinburgh’s oldest continually operating golf course.
  • Check out the historic Fairmilehead Parish Church, which was opened in 1938 and is situated by a road junction mentioned in Robert Louis Stevenson’s writings.
  • Enjoy the natural beauty of this part of Edinburgh and go for a hike in Pentland Hills Regional Park, a sprawling green space with 100 kilometres of marked walking routes.

Fairmilehead is nine kilometres south of the city centre of Edinburgh. It is well connected by motorways, with the A720 (city bypass), A702, and B701 passing right through the community. Edinburgh has a good bus system that can take visitors from the city centre to the outlying communities and suburbs. In Fairmilehead, visitors will find bus stops for routes 4, 11, 15, and 18 located close to the parish church, although driving is the most convenient way to see the attractions in this part of Edinburgh. There are also a few walking and cycling tracks in the area for those looking for recreation.
