At one time a small village miles from its nearest neighbour, Juniper Green has grown to be a popular residential suburb of Edinburgh running along the foot of the Pentland Hills and around five miles from Edinburgh City Centre. It is bordered by Colinton and Currie. Juniper Green houses range from traditional Victorian villas to modern flats and villas.

Still pleasantly rural in nature, it has a clearly discernible village centre which caters well for everyday needs. If more extensive facilities are required, even a trip to Princes Street will take perhaps twenty to twenty five minutes at the most. There are, of course a number of alternative shopping centres and facilities close by, some of which are made more accessible by Edinburgh City Bypass.

Excellent local schooling is available at Juniper Green Primary School and the nearby Currie High School.

Nearby sporting facilities include golf, bowling and tennis clubs. There are delightful woodland walks along the Water of Leith which can be followed through Colinton to Stockbridge and the vibrant waterfront at Leith.
