LOCATION Duddingston/Durham Area This is a well established and popular residential area located to the east of Edinburgh’s City Centre. There are local shops catering for day-to-day needs and an abundance of more substantial facilities within easy reach. For example, Fort Kinnaird Retail Park at Newcraighall, one of Edinburgh’s finest shopping destinations, includes Marks and Spencer, Asda supermarket and numerous other well known retail and leisure outlets. Duddingston village on the edge of Holyrood Park is of historical interest and offers the famous Sheep Heid pub for eating and drinking. Holyrood Park, Figgate Park and a plethora of golf courses means there is ample surrounding green space. There are regular bus services providing access to the City Centre and further afield. The location allows straightforward and quick access by car to the City Bypass, hence to the wider motorway network. The nearby seaside town of Portobello provides its own unique character, a wealth of High Street services and of course the attractive sandy beach. The area is well served by nursery, primary and secondary schools, notably Duddingston Primary and Portobello High. These particulars are prepared for the guidance of prospective purchasers.
