Silverknowes is situated in the north-west area of Edinburgh. Originally a farming area, this district began to develop more into a residential sector as the 20th century progressed. By the end of the century, the last of the farm buildings had been removed, signalling the end of centuries of agriculture and farming. Today, the district has booming housing developments and is a popular place to visit for both tourists and locals alike. Nearby attractions include the fascinating Lauriston Castle and the Firth of Forth Promenade. These and many more attractions await visitors in Silverknowes, a welcoming and friendly Scottish community.
