Live the Life

Kirkliston is a small town within commuting distance of Edinburgh, located in West Lothian near the Forth Bridge. With good transport links and lots to see and do in the local area, it’s no wonder that new homes in Kirkliston are so popular with families of all ages.

Things to see and do

Although Kirkliston is a small town, there’s lots to do in the local area including relaxing walks at Almondell and Calderwood Country Park, family-friendly days out at Deep Sea World in North Queensferry and Edinburgh Zoo, and outdoor adventures at Beecraigs Country Park.

The town is only a short drive away from Edinburgh, where you can go shopping in high street stores on Princes Street and at independent boutiques in the cobbled West End, or explore historic sights including Edinburgh Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse. Other popular sights in the city include the National Museum of Scotland, Arthur’s Seat and the Royal Botanic Garden.

If you enjoy sports, you can go climbing at the International Climbing Arena, or horse riding at the Scottish National Equestrian Centre and Houston Farm Riding School. Niddry Castle Golf Club and Dundas Parks Golf Club are only a short drive from the town.

Other attractions in the local area include Hopetoun House, Gorgie City Farm and Inchcolm Island, which you can reach by boat on the Maid of the Forth.

For families moving to a new home in Kirkliston with young children in tow, it’s good to know there are a number of schools to choose from in the local area, including Kirkliston Primary School and Queensferry Community High School, along with independent education at Clifton Hall School.

If your older children want to live at home while studying for a degree, the University of Stirling, the University of Edinburgh and Edinburgh Napier University are all close enough for a daily commute.
