Hi everyone,

My family and I will be relocating to Edinburgh in March from overseas. We are a British family who have been abroad for the last 7 years. Our twin girls will be attending St George's.

We will be renting for the first year in order to get a feel for the city. Can anyone recommend some areas to live that won't take more than 20-30 minutes to drive to school. We are hoping to keep the budget around 2000GBP or less per month and need at least 3 bedrooms.

Thank you all so much!

No where really takes more than 20/30 minutes to drive to school in Edinburgh! That's a decent budget so I'd be looking at Stockbridge , morningside, Trinity maybe, Murrayfield. What about this.. www.rettie.co.uk/property-for-rent/edinburgh/edinburgh-south/craiglockhart/9738-4-bed-house

It's roughly a ten minute drive max from school.

Thank you so much winterland. That house looks about perfect. We cannot wait to relocate. We came over for the half term break and neither girl wanted to leave.

Give us a shout when you land! Edinburgh MNetters had a meet a while back to welcome some new members. Sounds like a good opportunity for a new meet?

That would be wonderful! I would love to meet some people.

Great - there were about 15 of us out last time. I have recently relocated (back) myself. You will love it!
