West Coates

West Coates is a quaint district located in the heart of Scotland's capital city of Edinburgh. The area is considered residential, but is home to a number of small hotels and cosy bed and breakfasts situated in historic buildings. Donaldson's College, founded in 1851 as a school for the deaf, is currently being renovated into new, luxury apartments. Theatres, galleries, sporting events, and museums fill the city. Nearby modern clubs and premier restaurants contrast with this historically rich area. Stay, shop, and dine in West Coates whilst exploring Edinburgh and its neighbouring towns.

  • West Coates is close to most cultural and artistic events within the city; the Edinburgh Festival runs from July to September, and the annual four-day Hogmanay event features traditional Celtic performers, food, and fireworks.
  • The city hosts a staggering number of musical events, and popular venues include the Royal Lyceum Theatre, the Edinburgh Playhouse, and Usher Hall; major concerts are held at Murrayfield and Meadowbank.
  • Exhibitions at museums, galleries, and libraries are easily accessible from West Coates; the National Gallery of Scotland, the National Museum of Scotland, and the National Gallery of Scotland are top local attractions.

West Coates is located in eastern Scotland, in the northern part of the United Kingdom. West Coates is located on the A8, the main route to the city, and is about a 10 minute drive from the international Edinburgh Airport. Most major sites within the city can be reached within 30 minutes from West Coates. The area is far enough from the centre of town to avoid the city noises, but is close enough to reach during a leisurely 20 minute stroll. Board one of the convenient, frequent buses or jump on a train at the historic Haymarket railroad station.
