Torphin

Someone referred to Torphin as "Edinburgh's hidden gem," and they were justified in doing so with the historic area's beautiful houses, nestled amidst rolling hills, 100-year-old golf course, restaurants, bars, and other attractions. The suburb gets its name from Torphin Hill, a massive mound that has a commanding view of the surrounding countryside. The name, itself, is derived from "torr fionn," a Scottish Gaelic term that means "white tor." The iconic Water of Leith winds its way opposite the suburb, whilst Juniper Green is a short stroll to the north. The interesting Warklaw Hill is also part of this suburb.

  • Start your tour of Edinburgh's hidden gem by visiting its western side, a largely rural area that is home to a small number of beautiful, mid-20th century bungalows, and one of the area's biggest draws.
  • Visit the Torphin Hill Golf Club, a historic course, just outside Edinburgh, which celebrated its centenary in 1995; because it is elevated, the facility offers superb views of the surrounding countryside, which extend as far as the eye can see.
  • Visit the northern slope of Warklaw Hill, once mined for its valuable rocks, and now partly occupied by the Colinton Community Compost.

Torphin is a scenic suburb of Edinburgh, just south of beautiful Juniper Green, and lying on both the east and west sides of the Edinburgh City Bypass. Visitors can get to this lovely neighbourhood by bus; Lothian operates a regular, efficient service to the area. Another option is to use a hired car; a large number of companies offer excellent services at a relatively reasonable rate. Those who are not familiar with Edinburgh's and Torphin's layout may be better served by taxi; these are easy to get in the city.
