Jonathan Taeuber lives in Fettes and he tells us what he loves about the area:

I live in Fettes which is near Craigleith. I love living in this area as it is really central, 10 minutes walk to Stockbridge and Inverleith Park, another 5 minutes to the Botanical Gardens and only about 30 minutes walk to Princes Street. Great for easy access to the airport and forth road bridge. Close to retail parks and easy to get out of the city.
