While Morningside. with its history. has been the focus for countless words. neighbouring Bruntsfield has merited scant attention in the city's archives. Few famous names have inhabited its Edwardian houses and tenements. although the adjoining Links played a major part in the development of the game ofgolf.

Like Morningside it has developed rapidly since the 1880s. when electric trams and the Edinburgh and South Side Suburban Railway brought new residents and city amenities. The trams and trains have long since gone ofcourse. but the excellent shops. cafes and village atmosphere remains.
