More of an Edinburgh village than a suburb, Stockbridge retains a unique character, embodied by the white-collar professionals and yummy mummies who call it their home.
While the area offers less for the working class man – bottles of Buckfast are hard to come by – it’s a charming place for those who prefer the finer things in life. ‘Finer’ in this case being artisan bread, red wine and cupcakes. Hell, even the Pizza Express in Stockbridge looks better than its dowdier cousins across town.
