Morningside also boasts a cinema, a theatre, and Waitrose and Marks & Spencer supermarkets. In addition, Cameron Toll shopping centre is in close proximity, and offers a great range of local shopping plus a 24-hour gym.

The Grange lies within easy reach of the city centre, but also close to many of Edinburgh’s wonderful green open spaces such as the Meadows, Bruntsfield Links, the Hermitage of Braid and Blackford Hill Nature Reserve and Craiglockhart; all offering plentiful walking and cycling opportunities and providing a lovely contrast between the city and the countryside. In addition, there are numerous recreational facilities in close proximity including Merchant’s of Edinburgh and the Braids golf courses; the Royal Commonwealth Pool, various tennis clubs and the Midlothian Snowsports Centre at Hillend.

The property is in the school catchment for James Gillespie’s and also convenient for a number of independent schools on the south side of the city, including George Watson's, George Heriot’s and Merchiston Castle School. Edinburgh and Napier Universities are also within easy reach as well as the Royal Dick Veterinary College at Easter Bush and The Edinburgh Royal Infirmary.
