Kirkliston

Kirkliston is a village situated above the north bank of the River Almond, about eight miles west of the centre of Edinburgh. The town is a somewhat eccentric combination of modern construction around the edges of the existing village and a centre that is rather abandoned. However, the village still has an alluringly peculiar charm that attracts many visitors. Kirkliston is particularly well known because the secret recipe for the popular honey liquor, Drambuie, was developed here. This small town provides visitors to Edinburgh with a wonderful way to experience history.

  • Get your heart pumping at the Kirkliston Leisure Centre, which offers various athletic amenities including fitness classes, yoga and an extensive gym.
  • Visit Church Kirk, the oldest surviving building in the village and namesake of the town; built in the 12th-century “Norman Transitional” style, this church is a must-see in Edinburgh.
  • Explore the nearby Royal Mile, which extends from Edinburgh Castle in the west to the Scottish Parliament Building and the Palace of Holyroodhouse in the east.

There are many options for getting around Edinburgh and to get to Kirkliston. One option is Kirkliston Private Hire, a local taxi service with airport service. Edinburgh also offers the Lothian Bus service and the First ScotRail. The Lothian Buses make stops throughout the city, and First ScotRail provides transportation to cities around Scotland and the UK, including Kirkliston. Once in the village, it is easy to walk around to all of the attractions. For those visitors coming from outside the country, there are flights available to Edinburgh, as well as trains from nearby cities.
