Polwarth is a small residential village and parish situated in Scottish Borders area of Edinburgh.

Polwarth continued to develop and became a popular place for the poor, which is reflected in the large number of tenements that still exist today. Now, its proximity to Edinburgh has made it a coveted location for affluent people from the city to buy houses and there are a number of new restaurants and green spaces that were built to accommodate them.
