Miller Homes - Kings Gate, EH17
Gilmerton has good public transport connections with easy access to the wealth of historic and cultural attractions that Edinburgh offers. Buses on routes 11 and 31 stop a few minutes walk from the development, providing direct access to Morningside, Leith, Newington and Corstorphine as well as the city centre, and both have night services.
In addition, the development is just five minutes drive from the City Bypass, providing fast transit to the airport, Fife and the whole of the central belt. The new Royal Infirmary and the University campuses at King’s Buildings and Little France are all in easy reach.
The area’s local attractions range from the intriguing Gilmerton Cove, a man-made underground complex almost 300 years old, to the delightful Butterfly and Insect World and, in complete contrast, the Edinburgh Combat Challenge laser adventure game. Midlothian Snowsports Centre and the Pentland Hills are nearby, and there are several green spaces within a few minutes walk such as Drum Park with its children’s playground, and the Burdiehouse Burn Valley Local Nature Reserve where herons, dippers and woodpeckers can often be seen.
