Saughton, to the west of the City Centre, is a residential area with property to suit house buyers in all sectors - first time buyers, young and growing families. Houses in Saughton are a mix of flats, terraced homes and larger villas.

Local specialist shops cater well for day-to-day needs and more extensive amenities are within easy reach at Corstorphine, the Gyle shopping centre and Hermiston Gate Retail Park. Schooling is well represented from nursery to senior level.

Leisure and recreational facilities abound locally and include golf courses, Saughton Park with Scotland's largest skate park, the Water of Leith, Edinburgh Zoo and nearby Cramond and Silverknowes shorelines.

Well served by the local public transport system, including the soon to be completed Edinburgh Tramway, the area is ideal for the commuter, both into and out of Edinburgh, with easy access to Edinburgh City Bypass, national motorway networks and Edinburgh International Airport.
