With the bright lights of Edinburgh on your doorstep, all the attractions, shopping, dining, culture and festivals that make it so famous are all within easy reach.
But you don’t have to head into the city for your day-to-day essentials, or to enjoy a little retail therapy. Just a few minutes from Broomview is Hermiston Gait Retail Park. Here you’ll find a great choice of shops, including a large Tesco Superstore, TK Maxx and B&Q to name just a few.
Gyle Shopping Centre is nearby too. Just a few minutes’ drive away, there are over 70 of your favourite high street names here, plus a Morrisons supermarket and lots of places to grab a bite to eat.
There’s more to this great location than shopping and keeping the kitchen cupboards well-stocked. If you fancy stretching the legs, walking the dog or letting the children run off some energy, the area has lots of public parks. Sighthill Park is just across the road, plus Gyle public park is nearby. It boasts great views, plus play areas, an outdoor gym, a roller hockey area and more. If you fancy catching a movie, there’s also an Odeon cinema just over a mile away from the development.
Broomview is a great location for growing families. So it’s good to know that there’s a good choice of schools nearby. Broomhouse Primary School and for older children, Forrester High School and St. Augustine’s RC High School are the catchment Schools for Broomview.
Out and about
Of course, living at Broomview, Edinburgh will always be the main attraction. Whether you work in the city, or just want to enjoy everything it has to offer, with lots of transport options, bus, tram, train, car or bike, getting there is easy. But if you want a change of scene, with the M8 close by, you can be in the centre of Glasgow in under an hour.
Or you could bypass the cities altogether and head for the many beauty spots in the region. You can pick up the coast-to-coast John Muir Way nearby which not only is it great way to explore the city, but pick it up further east and it’s a brilliant way to see the scenic towns and picturesque coastline of Musselburgh and Prestonpans.
The quaint seaside town of North Berwick, is great for a day out and is under an hour’s drive away.
