Over 600 new homes in Scotland are under construction in Kirkliston, situated in the countryside on the outskirts of Edinburgh. The handy location, which is also close to West Lothian and Fife, offers a semi-rural setting yet the hustle and bustle of the city centre is only around 20 minutes away. Most of these new properties in the historical village are family homes and the schools in the area enjoy excellent reputations. A leisure centre offering a variety of classes and facilities is also popular with families in the area. Other local amenities include a small supermarket, pubs, eateries, library and health centre. A number of housebuilders have developments at the site including the following round up:

Prices start from £173,995 for the three-bedroom mid-terraced ‘Coupar' house type with a spacious living room, a kitchen/dining area with French doors to the rear garden and a private parking space. The ‘Mull' house type is a five-bedroom detached villa priced from £364,995 and boasting a lounge, dining room, breakfasting kitchen, en suites to two of the bedrooms and a detached double garage.
