Hello! Folks have always been lovely and helpful whenever I've come on here, so hopefully I'll get the same response this time! To cut a long story short, my husband has a new job in Edinburgh...not quite city centre, but out towards Leith. He is renting a flat near the city centre while our young children and I are left behind down South trying to sell our house :-( We had always intended to live in Glasgow as this is 'home' to us. However, we are now considering Edinburgh in order to cut short Mr D's commuting time (and hopefully get more quality family time in the process!) Where is a nice place to live? Where has good schools? Correct me if I'm wrong but some of the best schools (eg. Lenzie, Williamwood, Mearns Castle, Jordanhill) all seem to be out Glasgow way. Or am I just being biased ;-) It's true that I know Glasgow much better than Edinburgh. My only real prerequisite is that I'd like to be 'in the thick of things' and close to amenities. Having lived for a few years now in a new build development which is miles from anywhere, I'd love to now be within walking distance or easy public transport distance of the city centre. I know this will be pricey, but o/h would save a small fortune in commuting costs. What is Leith like, for example? I look forward to hearing from you, and thanks in anticipation.
