Bonaly Primary School is within easy walking distance and Merchiston Castle School is on the edge of the village, whilst George Watson's College and Napier University's Craiglockhart campus are within easy reach.
In the vicinity public footpaths give access to the nearby Pentlands Regional Park, offering lovely country walks.
Munro Drive offers easy access both to the main arterial routes into the city centre and to the city bypass, the airport and the Central Scotland motorway network.

A bright and welcoming reception hall, flooded by natural light, provides access to a cloakroom, two studies, wine room, open plan dining room, double height glazed atrium, family living room and a superbly appointed kitchen/breakfast room. Beyond lies a utility room and laundry room with connecting door to the integral garage and also a housekeeper/nanny's bedroom with en suite shower room. A corridor from the reception hall also leads past the stunning wine cellar to the east wing which comprises shower room, gym or bedroom and two further bedrooms both with en suite shower rooms. A stairway rises from the reception hall to the first floor accommodation with a sumptuous principal bedroom with dressing area, separate dressing room, spacious and luxurious bathroom and the principal bedroom with south facing window and door to the roof terrace with hot tub. From the landing, a corridor gives access to the games room, a cinema room and three further bedrooms (1 en suite) and a family bathroom.
Outside the property is well screened from Munro Drive with electronically controlled pedestrian gate and vehicular gates, lawn and off-street parking. A particular feature of Abergeldie is the beautifully maintained and landscaped south facing garden with a central water feature, well stocked flowerbeds and mature shrubs and trees.
