Information from Miller Homes:

“Within a pleasant walk of Princes Street and the many attractions of one of Europe’s most celebrated city centres, it is also immediately adjacent to one of Edinburgh’s most popular walking and cycling paths, a route extending from the Leith Waterfront to Murrayfield, where it links with the Water of Leith walkway to give access right into the heart of the Pentland Hills. Yet it is also just yards from major trunk routes out of the city.

In easy walking distance of the Cramond and Granton waterfronts and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Varcity North development has been designed to reflect and enhance its superb setting.”
