Juniper Green

About the Area

Juniper Green is a residential suburb to the South West of Edinburgh, between Currie and Colinton. It has been part of the City of Edinburgh since 1920.

A bicycle-pedestrian path runs along the old single-track Caledonian Railway line which was opened in 1874 and which provided a passenger railway service until 1943.

A pleasent leafy route that takes you to the Pentland foothills in neighbouring Balerno.

There are occasional vestiges of Juniper Green's industrial past, which included flax, grain, paper and snuff mills.
