Edinburgh property focus: Newhaven and Trinity

Newhaven and Trinity are two of the most desirable locations in Edinburgh.

Both are situated between Leith and Granton in the Northern district of Edinburgh. Trinity was also classed as part of Greater Leith until the 1920s.

Both Trinity and Newhaven are seen as attractive areas for those looking to buy and here’s why:

Edinburgh Property

Properties in Newhaven and Trinity are extremely desirable due to the fact they are both close to the city centre but far enough away that you are able to lead a more peaceful life, just a stone’s throw away from The Shore.

Property prices are varied depending on what you’re looking for. A two-bed flat can go for anything north of £195,000.

As Newhaven was known for its mansion like homes, you’re looking at anywhere around the £500k mark for a spacious family home. But trust us when we say that it’s worth the extra money and can be a real investment for the future.

Whether you’re a first-time buyer, searching for your forever home, or looking for somewhere suitable to invest in a buy-to-let property, Newhaven and Trinity are two locations that definitely fit that bill.


Looking for an area with some character? Then this is the place for you.

Trinity plays host to one of the most historic schools in the city, Trinity Academy. Newhaven is host to a lighthouse that was built in the 1800s to protect fishermen bringing oysters to the shore.

This area certainly isn’t lacking in charm and appeal.

Food and drink

Just a short walk away there are some fantastic restaurants, including Loch Fyne. If you love fresh seafood then this is the place for you, but don’t worry they also have a fantastic ‘from the land’ section for those who aren’t fish fans.

Right across the road is a lovely little pub called the Old Chair Pier, with gorgeous views of the Firth of Forth. Enjoy a wee tipple and watch the sunset in this popular gastro-pub.

Other amenities

There’s everything you need right on your doorstep. Newhaven and Trinity are just a few minutes away from the stunning Royal Botanic Gardens and the green grass of Inverleith Park.

If it’s a rainy-day head along to Ocean Terminal, where you’ll find a range of retail stores, coffee shops, restaurants, a gym and even a cinema.
