The Braids is one of Edinburgh's most sought after residential areas due to its proximity to the City Centre and its closeness to the countryside. It only takes 10 minutes to drive to the City Centre and 5 minutes to the City Bypass, which gives immediate access to Scotland's motorway network and to Edinburgh International Airport. There are excellent local shops, a nursery within 5 minutes walk and good schools both in the state and private sectors, in particular George Watson's College and Merchiston Castle School. There are lovely local walks nearby. The Braid Hills bridle path is within 50 yards and within 10 minutes one can get to the Hermitage of Braid which has a Ranger Service and children's room. There are one junior and four senior golf courses nearby as well as the Hillend ski slopes and Pentland Hills Regional Park.
