Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland and is a beautiful city, full of culture and history. People love Edinburgh because it is a big enough city with lots of things to do, but is small enough so you can find your way around very easily. L’Arche Edinburgh was founded in 1991, in a vibrant part of the city called Leith, which has its own distinct heritage. Our community houses are a short walk from the sea, as well as lots of parks, and about a fifteen minute bus trip to Edinburgh Castle.

Many people who join our community take advantage of the close proximity to Scotland’s renowned countryside, as we live in close proximity to many wild and beautiful locations.
