About this property

  • The subject site is irregular in shape. It forms the majority of the western part of New Brunstane, which is bisected by the East Coast Mainline railway line. The two parts are currently connected by a small bridge. The site has a gentle slope north east towards Joppa and comprises largely undeveloped land which is currently used for agricultural purposes. It is accessed from Newcraighall Road to the south of the site. The land benefits from a number of excellent views towards the Firth of Forth, Berwick Law, the Pentland Hills and Arthur’s Seat. The site is bounded to the north by the Brunstane Burn beyond which lies Edinburgh College’s Milton Road Campus. To the east lies the railway line and the eastern part of the New Brunstane site which will continue to be used for agricultural purposes in the short-term. To the south of the site is land under development by Barratt Homes (Newcraighall Village) beyond which lies Newcraighall Road and further residential homes. Finally, to the west of the site lies Brunstane House (category A listed) and existing housing at Gilberstoun.
