A private housing development of W Edinburgh, Clerwood comprises the southern part of the larger district of Clermiston, a half-mile (1 km) north of Corstorphine. To the east, close to the summit of Corstorphine Hill, is Clerwood House - a three-storey Victorian villa (c.1860 by Thomas McGuffie) with a substantial modern extension (1995). Since 1998 this has been the base for the General Teaching Council for Scotland.

Built on the site of the former Clermiston House, Queen Margaret's College (later Queen Margaret's University) occupied a 9.3 ha (23-acre) campus on Clerwood Terrace until it relocated to the east of Edinburgh in 2008.
