Niddrie is a suburb located in Edinburgh, Scotland near the seaside area of Portobello on the south-eastern part of the city. This small suburb was privately owned by the Wauchope family up until the 1930s when the family donated their land to Edinburgh. Since then, Niddrie has underwent many changes and many of the historical buildings in the area were demolished to make room for public housing. For years Niddrie was known as a high crime area, but has undergone recent renovation, including the addition of parks, restaurants and shopping centres.
- Get some exercise while in Edinburgh at the Jack Kane Centre sports complex in Niddrie, which is a great collection of sporting equipment and workout facilities that will keep you in shape.
- Stroll down Mains Road in Niddrie, and you will find a quirky collection of stores, pubs and restaurants, including Tony’s Fish and Chip Bar, which is a great way to get a taste of local Edinburgh cuisine.
- Explore the Craigsmillar Castle just outside of Niddrie, and you can see the ruins of this late 14th century fortification that are among the best preserved in all of Scotland.
Edinburgh has a good system of public transportation that connects Niddrie with the rest of the city. The easiest way to get to Niddrie from the city centre of Edinburgh is to take the train and get off at the Brunstane or Newcraighall station because both are just a short distance away from Niddrie. There are also a few bus routes that go to Niddrie, but be sure to check the schedule, as services are infrequent. Those with private cars will find it easy to get to Niddrie, and there is plenty of public parking available.
