Location
Mid Kinleith is located to the south of Currie and enjoys an elevated position at the foot of the Pentland Hills with excellent views to the north. The site lies approximately 8 miles west of Edinburgh City Centre and enjoys good access to the Edinburgh City Bypass which is located 3 miles to the east.

The town of Currie is approximately 1.5 miles to the north and has a wide range of local amenities including shops, bars and restaurants, together with medical services and primary and secondary schooling.

There are regular bus services from Currie to the City Centre and other commercial centres including Edinburgh Park and Sighthill Industrial Estate.
Edinburgh City Centre is host to a wide range of services, including national high street retailers, medical services, leisure facilities, entertainment venues, professional and financial services, including the headquarters of many financial institutions.

Description
The site is irregular in shape and extends to approximately 1.35 acres and is accessed off a minor public road to the south. The land slopes gently downhill from south to north and comprises a range of former agricultural buildings including a large agricultural shed located on the north western part of the site, an open sided shed in the south eastern corner of the site and a traditional stone built barn on the south western boundary. The subjects are bounded to the east and west by residential properties and agricultural land to the north and south. Access to the traditional barn will be via a newly formed access off the public road. The access track to the east will be retained by the landowners with rights of access granted over it.

Planning
The traditional barn benefits from detailed planning permission for the restoration and conversion to one dwelling, granted by City of Edinburgh Council on 3rd August 2000 under ref: 00/01630/FUL. The planning consent has been implemented by a material start on site confirmed by City of Edinburgh council on 20th June 2002.

We consider there is scope for further residential development of the wider site subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
