When enjoying a holiday in Edinburgh, the capital city of lovely Scotland, Moredun is a popular place to visit. This area in the farmland regions south of the main city centre is a pretty, peaceful, and, in some ways, a nostalgic part of the city that offers visitors a nice snapshot of Scottish life, both modern and from long ago. With a backdrop of lush, green hills, this landscape is dotted with a number of fascinating historical buildings including authentic castles which are very interesting to explore—places sure to increase anyone’s appreciation for early architecture and suburban life.

  • Take a tour of the medieval Craigmillar Castle, located near Moredun, one of Edinburgh’s best preserved castles; it was built in the late fourteenth century and was once home to Mary, Queen of Scots.
  • Travel further north of Craigmillar to explore the Duddingston Loch and Bird Sanctuary southeast of Downtown Edinburgh, a wonderful nature preserve believed to be the birthplace of the sport of curling.
  • Wind-up the kids and let them run wild and free in the green flatlands of Drum Park, located between Ferniehill Drive and Drum St. in Moredun.

Getting to Moredun is fairly easy to do since it is regularly serviced by the city’s public transit. It is located about eight kilometres southeast of Edinburgh’s city centre. Driving is not recommended within Edinburgh, but if you’re trying to get to suburban Moredun quickly, perhaps a car is the best option available. The Lothian Bus Company is the main bus service and has the most routes, of which the 3, 8, and 29 all travel from the city’s centre south to Moredun. Taxicabs are readily available as well and offer travellers another reliable way to get around.
