|Quick Links:||Swanston is situated within 5 miles of Edinburgh city centre set in the foothills of the Pentlands. The Swanston area dates back from 1200s when the farm was set up and leased out by the estate.
As you drive up Swanston Road, the Brasserie and Farm House buildings dominate the side of the hill, with the golf course and farmland occupying the main use of the surrounding landscape. The cottages, offices and livery yard all form part of the original farm steading.
|Just a short walk up the hill from the Brasserie, you will find picturesque Swanston Village built on both sides of the Swanston Burn. These cottages and old school house have a mixture of slate and thatched roofs dating back from the 1700’s to 1900’s, built by the estate to house their farm workers. If you wander up passed the village the land use on the hill is mainly used for grazing cattle and sheep with public access encouraged.
Through the old Farm Steading you will find Swanston Cottage which was built in 1761 which has been converted over the years and is now a large house. It is known for its connection with Robert Louis Stevenson. His parents leased the house in 1867 when he was 17 and kept it until 1880.
