Riccarton is to the west of the Edinburgh City Bypass (the A720), and is known for being the location of Heriot-Watt University's main campus, including Oriam, Scotland's National Performance Centre for Sport which opened to the public in August 2016, and hosts several national sporting teams, as well as providing Heart of Midlothian F.C. as well as the Hibernian F.C. Under 20 team with training facilities.
