This map shows the location of Colinton Parish on the south-west edge of Edinburgh. The parish includes a wide variety of housing, agricultural, military, commercial and formerly industrial areas as well as taking in a stretch of the Union Canal and some of the Pentland Hills.

Bridge Road, Colinton, about a hundred years ago. The traffic problems were slightly different then.
