Explore Our Grounds
Merchiston stands on the edge of the picturesque riverside village of Colinton, 4 miles south west of the centre of Edinburgh in a spacious 100 acres (c. 40 hectares) of exceptionally beautiful grounds.
Shadowed by the stunning Pentland Hills, the views are the envy of many a city school. Your son will have the freedom to enjoy the extensive parkland, woodland, sports fields and facilities of the school grounds, which are bordered by the Water of Leith.
