This (Scottish Gaelic: Baile Cholgain) is a quite southwestern suburb of Edinburgh, Scotland. The community is situated 3.5 miles (5.6 km) south-west of the city centre. Up until the late 18th century it appears on maps as Collington.

It is bordered by Dreghorn to the south and Craiglockhart to the north-east. To the north-west it extends to Lanark Road (the A70) and to the south-west to the City Bypass. Bonaly is a subsection of the area on its southern side.

The suburb is a designated conservation area. Although now a well-established suburb of Edinburgh, the original heart of the community is still referred to as “Colinton Village”, with small speciality shops and many original buildings remaining intact.

A number of significant Victorian and Edwardian villas Along the major route to the city centre. Some of these elegant properties were designed by Edward Calvert.

The Dell extends along the Water of Leith Walkway from the Parish Church towards Slateford. It contains a mixture of mature and ancient woodland.

The Dell area is a natural habitat for wildlife. The walkway and cycle path pass by original mill buildings and an old tunnel that dates back to when the path was part of the local railway line. Spylaw Park is situated within the area.
