Saughton is a suburb of Edinburgh, Scotland that is situated in the western portion of the city. This quaint and peaceful suburb has a dubious reputation among Edinburgh locals, as it is mainly known for the HM Prison Edinburgh. The prison has been there since the early 20th century, so much of the suburb initially emerged as a result of its presence. Prior to that, Saughton was primarily a rural area, and it still retains that feel with its rolling hills and clean green spaces that draw visitors from all over.
- Take a stroll around Saughton Park, where you will find a wonderful network of trails to hike around on, as well as a massive skatepark, where the best skateboarders in Edinburgh can be found practicing their tricks.
- Go to the local sports complex and play games like squash, tennis and badminton, using the state of the art facilities that are among the best in all of Edinburgh.
- Explore the nearby Gorgie City Farm, and get to know the animals on a real working farm.
