Overlooking the Firth of Forth and bound by the neighbouring Forthquarter Park, West Shore is uniquely advantaged by its tranquil setting on Granton Waterfront.

The development is located northwest of Edinburgh’s city centre and is set to form part of a new, sustainable coastal community that is defined by ‘local living’ whereby the principles of the 20-minute neighbourhood philosophy have been adopted to provide homeowners with access to the majority of daily needs within a 20-minute walk, wheel or cycle.

Over the next ten years, Granton is to see significant investment in localised infrastructure but with a wealth of amenities close by and excellent public transport links connecting to the bustling area of Leith, West Shore has a lot to offer…

What's Here: Leisure

The tranquil setting of Cramond Beach and Promenade are everythig you expect from a coastal setting. Walking and cycling trails meet the freshy, salty sea air that offer pitcuresuqe outlook towards the Firth of Forth.

Lauriston Castle and Grounds is another idyllic retreat from the hustle & bustle and is just 2.3 miles from the development but if you are more of the sporting persuasion and partial to an occasional birdie, Silverknowes Golf Course and the Bruntsfield Links are just a five-minute drive away and will surely pose a challenge. If the outdoors isn’t for you, Edinburgh College’s Granton Campus and PureGym will soothe your fitness goals but if you are just looking for fun and a bit more towards the social life, Edinburgh is the tourist capital of the world that is also home to a  great nightlife scene that is ideal for a weekend of TLC…

What's Here: Travel

Future homeowners will benefit from a well-connected public transportation network and a development that has reduced car use and increased bicycle storage to promote active travel. For public transport, a bus stop is conveniently located just 500m south of West Shore Road whilst the new Edinburgh Trams stop in Newhaven is 3 miles east and can provide ease of access to the city centre which offers both Waverley and Haymarket Train Stations.

Going further afield? Edinburgh International Airport is within a 20-minute drive and offers 1000s of routes to wonderful domestic and international destinations.

What's Here: Retail

With West Shore being so close to our capital city, this means access to a diverse and thriving retail landscape ranging from the ever-present George Street to the fantastic St. James Quarter. Whether it is fashion or amenities that cater to your culinary needs, there is quite literally something for everyone.

Closer to home, various shops and supermarkets cater to your everyday needs including the national food retailer Morrisons, located within a 5-minute walk, as well as Lidl and the multi-purpose B&M which are also just a short distance away (1.5 miles) on West Granton Road.

What's Here: Education

A wide variety of early learning centres and primary & secondary schools of various denominations are within short reach of the development. For higher education, the Granton campus for Edinburgh College, located on Waterfront Broadway, is accessible by a 3-minute bike ride or a 10-minute walk through the neighbouring Forthquarter Park.

Edinburgh is also home to some of the most prestigious schools in Scotland. The University of Edinburgh and Napier University, whose students have helped contribute to the research and development of some of the technologies in use at our development, are both within reach in 30 minutes by bicycle

What's Here: Health

Various health and medical facilities are within a short distance of West Shore. Crewe Medical Centre, a 20-minute walk or 10 minutes on public transport, is perfect for non-emergency needs but if you are ever in need of specialised care, Western General Hospital stands ready and is just 2 miles south of the development.

For your general health and wellbeing needs, GPs, optometrists and dentists are easily accessible along the waterfront whilst the direct transport routes to the city centre can offer additional choice both publically and privately.

What's Coming: Granton Waterfront Regeneration

The £1.3bn Granton Waterfront Regeneration is now well underway. Alongside the creation of new homes – a total of 3500 will be delivered within the decade – the City of Edinburgh Council has transformed the former Granton Railway Sation into a new business hub and works are underway on the transformation of the former Granton Gasholder.

Both of these historically significant projects are the first of many essential services that will be brought to Granton including arts, culture & business hubs as well as schools, a leisure centre, and upgraded public transport infrastructure. What’s more, Europe’s largest coastal park will breathe life into the ever-changing coastline…
