Moving to Edinburgh

by rachclem

My boyfriend and I are moving to Edinburgh sometime mid-September 2007. What I'm wondering is: what are the good ares of town to move to? I'm 21 and he's 23 (he is English, I'm Canadian on an Ancestral Citizenship Visa), we're not into clubbing or nightlife, we just want a safe area with nice neighbours and either right downtown or with good access to the bus. :) We're a bit fussy about accommodations, meaning we don't want anything with bugs (ugh) or run-down ramshackle appearances (outside is ok, I just want the interior to be well-kept). I can afford an alright place, I just need to know where's good and where isn't! I was thinking Old Town and New Town among a few others .... any suggestions? If all else fails, where do you recommend we STAY AWAY FROM?

Also, anyone know of any resources or where to look for listings for good letting agents/apartments/jobs?

Cheers!

Rach

The ESPC are a collective that advertise properties for local solicitors for sale and to rent out. What you'll generally have a choice of when looking for city centre flats are 100 year old tenements that have large spacious rooms or new developments with allocated parking but smaller rooms. Bugs don't really manage the Scottish weather and you could live a place for years without knowing your neighbours so I wouldn't worry on that front.

RE: Moving to Edinburgh

i have just moved to edinburgh (from glasgow) and i work here too.
New town (ieStockbridge, Comely Bank, etc) is prob THE most expensive area in town closely followed by the likes of Bruntsfield Morningside and Merchiston. If anywhere is likely to be a bit ramshackle its Old Town plus its quite studenty. The best thing to do is probably to take a wander when you get here. The other thing to check is whether you can get a bus from your preferred area to where you work.
Leith is the new up and coming area although still has bad bits. Avoid the likes of Craigmillar, Wester Hailes, Pilton (Post again if you see an area you arent sure about)
Are you going to buy or rent?

Hi
I live in Edinburgh and the best place to live is in the New Town, but can be a bit pricy.You are looking at £500-00 per month plus for a 1 bed flat.Students tend to live in Bruntsfield, Marchmont and Morningside.Avoid Wester Hailes, Niddrie and Craigmillar.Nearer the time if you get in touch I can send you estate agents we sites to look at. Hope this helps. Anything else you want to know just ask.

Thanks for the input!! We're looking to rent, probably somewhere around 500-600 per month ... I've been told that it isn't a good idea to get in touch with agents a few weeks before and make appointments since these places will likely be gone by time I arrive? I was also told that I could arrive and find somewhere within a few days and move in immediately ... Opinions on this? :)

Hi Rachel

Having rented several flats in Edinburgh over the last 5 years, I would recommend that you get yourself on the books of a couple of letting agents. Whislt there are plenty of flats that you could instantly rent, you will usually have to provide a reference and complete a credit check. This can take a few weeks. The price range you are suggesting will get you a good flat in a central location, I recommend the new Town/Stockbridge in that instance.

RE: RE: Moving to Edinburgh

Thanks :)

Any letting agents you particularly recommend?

I've mostly used Hadden Rankin on Howe St, good property portfolio and a no quibble service about calling out an engineer when the boiler broke in my last flat.

I'd look around the ESPC website for suitable properties then look up the associated letting agents or for other agents do a search using the Yellow Pages website.

An Idea from Queen Victoria

by scottishvisitor

Queen Victoria had this dog cemetery created a top Edinburgh Castle. This little resting place captured my interest , as like the Royals, I love dogs. You won't find any Royal dogs here though the charming little cemetery was created for officer's pets.

Modern architecture at its best

by Maidstoneman

Be sure to visit the new Parliament Building at Holyrood. Its not obvious that the public are allowed in, and once inside it is easy to miss the debating chamber which is a model of what modern parliament is all about.

THE PEAR TREE HOUSE

by Pixiekatten

This is definately one of the favourite hang outs in Edinburgh! And has been since I first went there in 1997! It still works! :)

Pear Tree House has been an Edinburgh institution since it opened as a bar in 1982. Situated close to Edinburgh University, it attracts a mixture of students and local customers, which creates a laid back, cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Draught and bottled beers, a wide range of spirits, liquers and single malt whiskys, cocktails, wine, filled rolls, coffees... The Peartree House has a large beer garden sorrounded by a high stone wall, perfect for summer days and summer nights! Enjoy a cold Hoegaarden in the sun. Order a burger right from the outdoor grill! Watch the BMX'ers swoosh in on their bikes straight to a table..
Pear Tree is always great fun!

Mon - Thu: 11am - 12 midnight

Sun: 12:30am - 12 midnight No football colours!!!
