Some may argue that living in Marchmont is better than living in New Town, but that’s up to you to decide. There are a lot of shops nearby and it’s only a short walk to campus through the Meadows. While the area may seem a bit residential, it’s also popular with students. It can get expensive, but you’ll still be able find a good deal if you look.
