A well-heeled suburb on the northern fringes of the city, Inverleith is home to some of the most desirable property in Edinburgh.  
 

Located in Inverleith is the Royal Botanic Garden, a scientific centre for the study of plants and a popular tourist attraction for walks, live performances, guided tours and exhibitions.
 

Across from "The Botanics" is Inverleith Park an expansive green area suitable for dog walking, sports and picnics. There is also a pond where you can spot water birds. Inverleith Park offers fantastic views of the Edinburgh skyline, including the castle and is a popular vantage point for the Hogmanay fireworks. Just adjacent to the park is the majestic Fettes College, one of Scotland's most prestigious private schools and, reputedly, the inspiration for J.K Rowling's Hogwarts Academy.
 

A twenty minute walk from Inverleith will take you to the centre of Edinburgh. Walk a similar distance in the other direction and you will come to the picturesque Newhaven Harbour where you can stop on a sunny day for fish and chips overlooking the Firth of Forth.
 

Buses travel regularly between Inverleith and the city centre. The journey takes around ten minutes.
