Neighbourhoods in Edinburgh

Hello! I'm new to the forum, am hoping to find out more about housing in Edinburgh. My husband and I and our baby girl (new addition to the family) are thinking of moving to Edinburgh for a stay of about Protected content , may even consider longer as we love Edinburgh to bits! Is anyone able to advise where's a good neighbourhood in Edinburgh for families with children? We dunno what's a realistic budget but my criteria is that it should be where baby can best make friends (both expat community & locals) and have fun outdoors and in, nice environment (less industrial, safe)We are ok with buying a house or renting on a longer term basis. Any idea whats the average budget to own a home? Other facts: we can drive (im only familiar with automatic transmission though, is that possible in edinburgh? i was told many countries in europe only offer manual driving) but I can't cycle.

My husband can work from home so proximity to workplace is not important.

Hope I can get some response.. :)

Cheers
