Corstorphine is a desirable residential area approximately four miles west of Edinburgh City Centre. Property in Corstorphine ranges from Victorian family villas and traditional bungalows to up to the minute modern flats and villas.The area has a busy main street which is the main road into and out of town towards Glasgow and Stirling. The main street has a number of small shops and the the Gyle Shopping Centre is located close by for further shops and amenities.
We find out a little more about Corstorphine from local resident Jaime Hill. Jaime, Business Support Assistant at ESPC, moved to Corstorphine seven years ago, having moved straight from her parents’ house in Carluke. This was her first taste of freedom and has never looked back!
Winston’s on Kirk Loan, perfect for a quiet drink.
Chinese Manor House, I know people who travel from the other side of Edinburgh just to have a Chinese here. And if you are not in the mood to dine out, you can just get a take-away instead.
Old corstorphine used to be situated on a piece of land between two lochs that are now drained (Gogar Loch and Corstorphine Loch). There was also a castle, only part left is the dovecot.
What I love the most: It has excellent transport links, you are only 15 minutes from the City Centre but you can get to the M8 and bypass in five minutes.
If so then it has to be the Zoo, I can sometimes hear the gibbons and the tiger from my house, and it always make me smile.
The tower at the top of Corstorphine Hill is open every Sunday from 2pm to 4pm to visitors up to the end of September; it is a bit of a trek to reach the top but the views across Edinburgh makes it worthwhile.
Historical, suburban and convenient.
Sir Chris Hoy grew up in Corstorphine!
