Welcome to Braid Hills Care Home in Edinburgh

Braid Hills can be found in a delightful leafy suburb of Edinburgh, with stunning views across the Pentland Hills. Purpose-built in the mid-1990s, the home has been extended and refurbished twice since then, and now has 126 rooms across four unique houses. Two houses provide care for frail elderly residents, one specialises in dementia care and the fourth offers care and support to young, physically disabled people.

As everyone is different and has different needs, we make sure that every resident living with us has their own personal care plan that's unique to them and them alone.


We are regulated by the Care Inspectorate.

Depending on its size, new residents are welcome to bring furniture to their new room. Many of our residents bring a favourite armchair or pictures and other small belongings to personalise their room.

This depends on availability of rooms in the home, understanding the cost of care and the person moving in receiving a care assessment.
