Juniper Green, Edinburgh


   Juniper Green is a residential suburb to the South West of Edinburgh, between Currie and Colinton. It has been part of the City of Edinburgh since 1920. A bicycle-pedestrian path runs along the old single-track Caledonian Railway line which was opened in 1874 and which provided a passenger railway service until 1943. A pleasent leafy route that takes you to the Pentland foothills in neighbouring Balerno. There are occasional vestiges of Juniper Green's industrial past, which included flax, grain, paper and snuff mills.
