Edinburgh University and the student community which comprises it, is located just south of the Old Town. Naturally, there are many cafes and restaurants catering for students and young bohemians.
Merchiston, Morningside and Newington lie farther south. These are desirable suburban residential areas, comprising largely of Edinburgh tenements and Victorian villas. There are also large areas of green on the south side of the city – not only Holyrood Park, from which an old volcano, Arthur’s seat, gives a spectacular vantage point, but also the Meadows, the Hermitage of Braid and Blackford Hill (home of the Royal Observatory, Edinburgh) and the Pentland Hills.
