If you'd rather rent outside the city centre then look no further, based in the north of Edinburgh, Blackhall encompasses a suburban atmosphere whilst being a gateway into the west end of Edinburgh. This area has recently seen an increase in renting opportunities as a result of the new developments -comprising of both villas and flats. This helps explain its popularity within the property market. In addition, leisurely walks can be enjoyed along the Water of Leith leading to a number of independent cafes and restaurants in Stockbridge. And if you're looking for something more close by, Craigleith Retail Park offers various shopping opportunities from supermarkets to clothing chains.
