South Gyle

South Gyle

South Gyle is an area of Edinburgh, Scotland, lying on the western edge of the city and to the south and west of an area of former marshland once known as the Gogarloch, on the edge of Corstorphine. To the north, some streets in the area have names including the words "North Gyle" but North Gyle does not correspond to a recognised separate area. Most of the buildings in the area are of recent origin, dating from the later 1980s, 1990s and early 21st century, with the exception of some farm workers' cottages and an early 1970s council estate abutting South Gyle railway station.

South Gyle can be neatly divided into two main zones – a residential one, incorporating Gogarloch and the neighbouring area centred on South Gyle Mains; and a commercial/business one which incorporates the Gyle shopping centre, Edinburgh Park business park, Gyle Park (an actual park, but with some shopping centres near it), and South Gyle Crescent. The Royal Bank of Scotland, The SAAS and sportscotland are all based in this district. The "Lochside" development also features a number of busts of Scottish poets.

Transport

Edinburgh Airport is nearby at Ingliston, and also close is the city bypass, connecting to several major routes into the city.

South Gyle has two branch railway stations: South Gyle station is on the line between Edinburgh and Fife, and Edinburgh Park station provides services to Edinburgh, Stirling and Dunblane and to Bathgate. The possibility of some Edinburgh to Glasgow express services calling at Edinburgh Park station is currently (2006) being investigated.

It is anticipated that the Edinburgh Tram Network will serve the The Gyle Shopping Centre from 2011.

Education

The area is served by Gylemuir Primary School, on Wester Broom Place. The closest secondary school is Craigmount High School in East Craigs.

Political ward

Drum Brae/Gyle is the name of a political ward within the Edinburgh West UK Parliament Constituency and the Edinburgh West Scottish Parliament constituency.
