Make the most of Colinton and Edinburgh
While you are in Colinton why not explore a little further. Now a flourishing suburb of the city of Edinburgh, Colinton is a former mill town that has retained much of its original village charm. Set in the midst of the peaceful Colinton Dell – a stretch of mature woodland nestled along the Water of Leith – the village offers numerous speciality shops and attractive restaurants and many of the original historic buildings remain intact – all just a 10 minute stroll from Merchiston.
