Muirhouse

Curious visitors may come to Muirhouse in search of the mid 19th century mansion the district is named after or to hear the stories of murder and betrayal that went along with the rise and fall of the estate. The council purchased the land in the 1950s, and Muirhouse is now filled with council housing and residential high rises. In fact, Martello Court, erected here amongst the council flats in 1967, is the highest residential structure in Edinburgh. Several well-known green areas including parks, gardens, beaches near the Firth of Forth, and golf courses are located in the area.

  • Tee off at the Silverknowes Golf Club near Edinburgh, where you can play 18 holes, enjoy beautiful views of the water, or lounge in the clubhouse.
  • Head to scenic Gypsy Brae Recreation Ground in Muirhouse for bird watching or a walk along Cramond Beach to Cramond Island during low tide.
  • Stop in at North Edinburgh Arts Centre for an educational art session or a professional music or drama performance, saunter through the centre gardens, or grab a coffee onsite at Café North.

The Edinburgh Airport is the closest place to fly into to get to Muirhouse in Edinburgh. Lothian Buses travel from the city centre to Muirhouse. They offer several lines with stops in the area near shopping centres and attractions with drop off and pick up about every 15 minutes. Though the buses are the most convenient method of public transportation, taxis are available for hire. Travelling by car within the suburb is a comfortable experience as well with several free parking areas. Once in the district, walking or bicycling between sites is common.
