One of Edinburghs most sought-after residential districts, Viewforth enjoys easy access to the city centre, by foot or 24-hour bus links, and lies close to the beautiful green spaces of Bruntsfield Links and the much-loved Meadows.

Just across the bridge from Viewforth, the canal-side area of Fountainbridge has been transformed into a new and cosmopolitan residential district, and is home to Fountain Park, which boasts a bowling alley, a casino, a luxury gym and a multi-screen cinema, as well as several bar, pubs and restaurants. Viewforth is also positioned adjacent to Bruntsfield, whose bustling main street promises one of the best traditional shopping experiences in the capital. Bruntsfield Place hosts a diverse blend of independent shops, cafes and eateries. Even more amenities can be found in neighbouring Morningside, including a boutique cinema and the Church Hill Theatre. Local schooling options include Bruntsfield and St Peters RC primary schools and Boroughmuir and St Thomas of Aquins RC secondary schools. In addition to fantastic public transport links, cycle paths and walkways, Viewforth offers excellent connections to Edinburgh City Bypass and motorway network.
