To feel the real pulse of Edinburgh, pull on some comfortable shoes and explore nearby areas such as Sighthill, Currie, and Kirknewton.
People come from all over the world to see Edinburgh Castle, one of the best-loved attractions in the country. It is less than 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) from the heart of town.
Immerse yourself in Balerno’s passion for sports at Murrayfield Stadium. This is home to Scotland National Rugby rugby union team in winter and the Edinburgh Rugby in autumn. After enjoying the game, follow the throngs of local sports obsessives to a nearby pub or bar for a post-match beer ot two.
When it’s time to wind down after a day spent exploring the delights of Balerno, check in to one of the area’s convenient accommodation options. The Novotel Edinburgh Park, the Norton House Hotel & Spa, Newbridge and the Dalmahoy Marriott Hotel & Country Club, Kirknewton are just some of the many great places to stay around here.
