Northfield & Willowbrae Community Council

A modern, lively community in the north east of Edinburgh

The district of the Northfield and Willowbrae Community Council stretches from within a few hundred metres of the beach at Portobello right across to the walls of the Palace of Holyroodhouse where the boundary follows the Queen's Drive. The ancient village of Duddingston and the parkland of Duddingston House mark one corner; the old village around Jock's Lodge, the A-listed houses at Piershill rebuilt from 18th century barracks, and the Figgate Burn Park all lie within its perimeter. The area is home to about 13,000 people in the mid 20th century areas of Northfield, Mountcastle, Abercorn, Lady Nairne, the Hamiltons, much of the Durhams and Southfield. Much of the land was owned by the Dukes of Abercorn whose family names are given to many of the streets.
