Balerno is a sought-after residential village, some eight miles south-west of the city centre. Located just off the A70, it is ideal for commuting by bus or car, with the nearby city bypass connecting to the main trunk routes and Edinburgh Airport. The thriving community supports a range of local shopping, services and amenities, with a Co-op within walking distance from the property, as well as sports clubs, a swimming pool, and well-regarded primary and high schools. There are supermarkets at The Gyle and Hermiston Gait retail parks and the Colinton and Longstone areas. Balerno lies on the edge of the Pentland Hills Regional Park and is convenient for pleasant woodland pathways along the Water of Leith, around Harlaw and Threipmuir, and in Balerno’s Malleny Gardens, with golf courses at Dalmahoy and Baberton.
