Recreation is well served within the village with two inns (one with a restaurant), Balerno High School has a good sports and leisure centre and there is a popular rugby team whose ground is at the centre of the community as is Malleny House Gardens with four, 400 year old Yew trees and a wonderful display of roses. A short walk south takes you into the Pentland Hills Country Park and Harlaw Reservoir. The Water of Leith walkway starts in Balerno and takes you all the way east through Edinburgh to the Port of Leith. Ratho and Baberton Golf Courses are within very easy reach. There are excellent local authority school facilities with highly regarded Deanpark Primary, a safe 5 minute walk from this house and acclaimed Balerno High School. The Heriot Watt University Campus is situated some 2 miles to the north east and there is easy access to all three of Napier Universities Campuses. Regular bus services from the nearby terminus takes you to and from the City Centre, serving many suburbs and parts of East Lothian.
