Fallhills Steading is located to the south of Edinburgh on the outskirts of the conservation village of Howgate with panoramic views of the Moorfoot and Pentland Hills.

Its setting provides the best of both worlds, being rural yet within easy reach of the professional and cultural hub of Edinburgh. Edinburgh offers a full range of services which are complemented by the nearby towns of Penicuik (2.5 miles) and Peebles (13 miles) with their superb local facilities, including shops, post offices, restaurants and leisure centres with swimming pools. The local school bus stops at the end of the private road providing transport to the schools in Penicuik. Aside from the extensive offerings in Edinburgh there are a number of local restaurants in the area including the popular Leadburn Inn, which is great for families, and the highly regarded Horseshoe Inn in Eddleston and Cringletie House.

The property is in a particularly accessible position, well situated for access to the Edinburgh City Bypass (A720), the city centre (11 miles) and for routes to the south. The bypass is approximately 6 miles to the north and gives access to the south, east and west of the city, Edinburgh International Airport and the motorway network. The A701 provides a direct link to the M74 to the south. There is an excellent bus service from Penicuik to central Edinburgh. The nearest train station is Eskbank (8 miles) which is on the Scottish Borders Railway route and has a direct service to Edinburgh Waverley.

Fallhills Steading is ideally positioned for outside recreation. The Pentland Hills Regional Park is popular for walking, mountain biking and fell running alike, and is home to the Midlothian Ski Sports Centre. To the south, close to Peebles and Innerleithen, there are further mountain biking trails within the 7stanes network. There are a number of local golf courses including Glencorse, Peebles and West Linton, with all the links courses of East Lothian easily accessible via the Edinburgh City Bypass.
