Less than a mile west of Princes Street, and within easy walking distance of the desirable West End and the New Town, as well as the bustling business and finance quarter of Tollcross and Lothian Road, Fountainbridge has undergone significant regeneration and redevelopment since 2011 to become one of the most fashionable residential districts in the capital. Fountainbridge has a proud industrial heritage ranging from rubber manufacturing to brewing, much of which has been sympathetically retained in its traditional tenements and luxury loft-style apartment complexes. Residents of Fountainbridge are spoiled for choice when it comes to leisure and nightlife, with fantastic bars, restaurants, clubs and theatres right on their doorstep.
