Hermiston is an idyllic, semi-rural suburb, dotted by rustic cottages and nestled in the outskirts of Edinburgh. It lies to the north of Riccarton, and is conveniently located close to Herriot-Watt University. This small but unperturbed suburb is perfect for travellers to the United Kingdom who are looking for quiet, affordable accommodations. Visitors will enjoy strolling around this peaceful town, and watching the shimmering, cool waters of the Union Canal that meanders from Falkirk to Edinburgh. Hermiston is the perfect spot for families to relax and recharge during their visit to the UK.
- Stroll along the banks of the Union Canal, which meanders through the lovely hill ranges of rural Edinburgh; a boat ride down the canal brings visitors through scenic landscapes marked by hills, bridges and cosy villages.
- Unwind at the Gyle Park, which is free for all visitors; this large park is ideal for an afternoon of football, rugby, or skateboarding.
- Savour the luxuries of Edinburgh at the famous Ratho Park Golf Club that offers an expansive stretch of green grass, canopies of shady trees and a luxurious club restaurant.
Hermiston is conveniently located close to the Edinburgh International Airport. From the airport, the best way to access the suburbs and enjoy the vistas of the countryside is to use the buses or rent a car. The Lothian buses travel to Hermiston and back to the city in intervals of 10 minutes. There are both day buses and night buses that run throughout the area. For travellers using a rented vehicle, take the A71 out of Edinburgh’s city centre to get to Hermiston. Once in the town, travellers can walk around or use local transportation.
