Murrayfield & Roseburn

An attractive suburb close to the city centre

About Murrayfield & Roseburn

Murrayfield is an affluent area established as one of the most sought after suburbs of Edinburgh. Situated just over a mile west of the city centre, it offers convenient access both into town and towards Edinburgh Airport. Housing in the area is mainly medium to large in size, with Easter Belmont Road often regarded as ‘millionaire’s row’ due to its size and well-known occupants.


Sport and leisure facilities are substantial here with Murrayfield Stadium home to the Scottish Rugby Union and the Edinburgh Rugby team. The stadium is also known for hosting some of the world’s most iconic artists over the years including James Brown, Madonna and The Proclaimers. Within close proximity there is also a large indoor ice rink (home to Edinburgh Capitals hockey team), a private tennis club, and the renowned Murrayfield golf club. A short walk from Murrayfield is the RZSS Edinburgh Zoo, home to the only Giant Pandas in the UK.


There are a wealth of independent cafes, bars and restaurants to enjoy, including The Murrayfield Hotel a popular spot for Sunday lunch. You can also buy original artworks and limited edition prints at the local art gallery. If you are looking to go further out of the area, Dalry hosts some incredible restaurants including Locanda de Gusti owned by award winning Italian chef Rosario Sartore.


With so much on offer, it is easy to see why Murrayfield is such a popular place to live, and why the local housing market moves so quickly there.
