Edinburgh's nine happiest neighbourhoods according to Evening News readers

The search for a truly happy place to live is never a simple one.

Blessed as we all are to live in Edinburgh, many of us have wildly different opinions on which parts of the city we feel at home in.

Within the Capital, there are options for those who love the hustle and bustle of a big metropolis, while others who enjoy a quieter lifestyle can find solace in its more peaceful corners.

The foodies among us may relish having a plethora of restaurants within a stone’s throw of their home, but nature-lovers prefer easy access to green spaces.

For most of us, community spirit is also a big part of where we want to live, savouring the chance to make friends with our neighbours.

We asked you, our readers, which neighbourhoods you thought were Edinburgh’s happiest. In no particular order, here are the results.
