A small district of W Central Edinburgh, Coltbridge takes its name from a bridge which carried the road over the Water of Leith. The district lies on the left bank of the river, to the south of St. George's School for Girls and Ravelston, and to the east of Murrayfield. Coltbridge was once the site of a mill. A bomb dropped from a German Zeppelin airship landed in the Water of Leith here on the night of 2nd April 1916, damaging nearby houses. Along with Wester Coates on the opposite side of the river, Coltbridge forms part of a conservation area, designated in 1987.
