The prestigious residential area of Ravelston has long been established as one of the most desirable suburbs of Edinburgh. It combines some of the finest architecture in Edinburgh with tree-lined avenues, large areas of mature public gardens and peaceful walkways along the Water of Leith. Houses for sale in Ravelston are predominantly made up of substantial property styles ranging from 1930's Art Deco flatted developments to traditional bungalows and Victorian villas.

Situated just over a mile from the City Centre, it is home to two of the country's most celebrated art galleries. The area is convenient for access out of town to Edinburgh International Airport. There are excellent road links and regular buses run frequently in and out of the Capital. With such renowned schools as St. George's, Mary Erskine's, Stewart's Melville, Fettes College and The Edinburgh Academy all within easy reach, the area is particularly popular with families.

Nearby Stockbridge and Comely Bank offer a wide variety of local shops and there is a large Sainsburys supermarket at Craigleith Retail Park, along with other High Street stores including Marks & Spencer & Boots.
