Haymarket is a popular residential area to the west of Edinburgh within easy walking distance of the main City Centre business and commercial centres. It is also convenient for those who travel extensively beyond the capital with its mainline station and direct access, via the A8 westwards through Corstorphine, to all major motorway networks, Edinburgh Business Park, Edinburgh International Airport and the Forth Road Bridges. Houses in Haymarket are a mix of traditional tenement flats and substantial family villas.
There is a wide range of local shops and restaurants and a Sainsbury's supermarket at nearby Murrayfield. Designer shopping is also close at hand on Princes Street and George as well as a host of small specialist shops around the West End.
The Union Canal walkway and Fountain Park leisure complex provide excellent recreational and leisure facilities.
