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!

Sarah from Xercise4Less gives Raring2go! some great ideas for family fun to keep fit and healthy. Don't get stuck indoors just because it is winter. Dark mornings, cold blustery evenings and it seems we would all rather reach for our duvet than even contemplate heading outdoors to get active! Remember it’s only cold when you’re standing still…
