The student apartments are well served with a variety of retail outlets creating an almost village feel about the area.

Leith is an area like no other in Edinburgh. Boasting its own distinct character, Leith is full of lively eating and drinking spots, creativity and cultural diversity. Various cultural festivals take place in Leith every year including the Leith Festival and the Edinburgh Mela.

This up and coming popular area has everything a student could need, from great student friendly pubs, to lots of local food shops. Transport links are great with the main bus routes leaving from just outside Gateway Apartments.
