Fountainbridge, Tollcross and Edinburgh West

Good walks and fine views over the city of Edinburgh.

Fountainbridge and Tollcross are former industrial areas, based around the formerly important Union Canal, on the western fringe of the city centre.

This area is re-blooming as the result of ongoing modern redevelopment. Lothian Road, which runs through the area, south from Princes Street in the city centre, is home to a number of art house cinemas, theatres, cafes and restaurants, as well as the famous Usher Hall concert hall. Further west of Tollcross and Fountainbridge is Murrayfield, Scotland’s national rugby stadium. Nearby is Costorphine Hill, which offers good walks and fine views over the city. At the foot of Costorphine Hill is Edinburgh Zoo. All these sightseeing highlights lie directly on the main AirLink bus route from the airport to the city centre.
