Most people get their first impressions of Edinburgh travelling through this district to the city centre. Many will visit the Zoo or Murrayfield Rugby Stadium. There are other great places here. There is a good walkway between Crammond and Silverknowes with expansive views of the Forth. Out past the city, a quarry was roofed over at Ratho and is now a climbing centre.
West Edinburgh has South Edinburgh on its southern boundary. To the east it's bounded by (from south to north) Old Town, New Town, Stockbridge and Canonmills, and Leith. It's quite a spread-out area: Murrayfield is walking distance from central Edinburgh but most other attractions are some miles away from the centre and from each other.
