Offices for rent in Edinburgh

Renting office space in the Scottish Capital can be difficult. A combination of location, price, resources and accessibility play a major part in how well a business can operate. Luckily, with help from Eger24, finding the right commercial space doesn’t have to be a gamble. There are a few key things to look out for when viewing any office space.

Now this differs of course depending on what your business is, but to help you figure out if a space will work just from a quick look, here are some very handy pointers to remember:

Conventional Office Rentals

As a rule thumb allow 50 – 60 sq ft per person*
Suited for larger business operations
Short term leases require 2 – 3 years minimum commitment

Serviced Office Rentals

Let by the desk
Choose from standard offices to executive suites
Expand or contract as your business grows or shrinks
Rolling contracts that are flexible
One monthly bill covers all associated services

Shared office Rentals

Monthly rolling contracts
Benefit from developed infrastructure & facilities already in place
All utilities & rates packaged in one monthly bill
Provides a more professional feel compared to a lone office
Can give the allusion of one bustling working environment 

*This rule applies to all of the above

Edinburgh Business Front

Business is always booming in Edinburgh. Housing your company here not only gives you access to a wide range of resources, but also puts you in one of the world’s most beautiful cities. Whether you’re planning on setting up a location in the historic city centre, or looking for a good space in one of the many industrial parks on the outskirts, it’s a fantastic city to have a business in.

Business Parks

Arrive in to Edinburgh from the airport or train coming in from the west and you’ll notice that are a lot of business parks and industrial estates located on the outskirts. Some of these include Newbridge Estate, Inveresk Mills Industrial Park, East Main Industrial Estate, Harvest Road, Gyle Business Park, Shawfair, Roddinglaw and Beaverbank. Office space is always in demand in the city centre and there’s never a bad spot for one either. Whether you’re looking for an office on Prince’s Street, St. Andrews Square or Haymarket’s business district, there will always be an office available.

Transport Links

With its own train station, two very popular train stations, and enhanced road links to the east, north and south, Edinburgh is one of the busiest cities in the UK. Edinburgh Waverly houses one of the busiest long distance routes in the country (Edinburgh-London) and is constantly busy throughout the day with so many tourists arriving to a plethora of hotels near Edinburgh Castle just on the station's doorstep. The station commonly has a large commuter base travelling to and from Glasgow every day. The introduction of a new monorail has also improved the link between the city centre and Edinburgh International Airport., which sits just 5 ½ miles from Edinburgh Castle. There are three major road routes out of Edinburgh. The M9 stretches to Falkirk and Stirling, the M90 going over the Forth and north to Dunfermline and Perth, and the M8 reaching over to Glasgow and the west coast. The A7 provides the fastest road link from the capital down south to Carlisle, while the A1 takes a coastal route through to Newcastle.


Edinburgh is viewed as the academic capital of Scotland and has a high concentration of universities and colleges within a 1 ½ square miles. Some of these include the Edinburgh College of Art, Royal College of Surgeons, Basil Paterson College, The University of Edinburgh, Royal College of Physicians and Basil Paterson College.

Social Life

The city is known for having a thriving arts scene and fantastic pub culture. Hundreds of theatres are dotted around old town and new town, with the city of course being home to the largest arts festival in the world (The Fringe Festival) It’s also a city to be in if you’re someone who loves museums. The National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh Castle, Our Dynamic Earth, Scottish National Gallery and Grassmarket are just some of the top tourist attractions dispensing plenty of knowledge to millions every year.
