Our Location

Pilrig House’s location really is hard to beat: just over a mile from the centre of Edinburgh (with an easy bus link), and only a short stroll to the Shore area of Leith, which has become the top foodie destination in Edinburgh and among the best in the UK. You may choose to walk there via the beautiful Water of Leith Walkway, which can be reached within minutes of Pilrig House. Also close by are: The Playhouse Theatre, Edinburgh swim and leisure centre, Martin Wishart’s Cook School, Edinburgh’s Botanical Gardens, the Royal Yacht Britannia, and additional award-winning eateries.
