Merchiston Castle School

Merchiston Castle School

Merchiston is situated in leafy surroundings close to the Pentland Hills on the south west side of Edinburgh, Scotland. Since 1833 we have been educating boys, the majority of whom board, and who come from a variety of backgrounds in the UK and abroad. No website can convey the warmth of Merchiston and the welcome you would receive if you visited us, but we hope that it will give you a flavour of Merchiston and that you will visit yourself soon, whether you are a boy or parent interested in joining us, a Merchistonian, or current parent!
