A Peugeot vehicle was found abandoned close to the scene.
Inquiries into the full circumstances are ongoing and the death is currently being treated as unexplained.
A report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.
Detective inspector Stuart Alexander said: "This death is very much unexplained and we are still in the early stages of our investigation.
"We are eager to establish the full circumstances leading to the discovery of the man's body and are investigating a number of lines of inquiry, including the potential that a Peugeot vehicle has been involved in this incident.
"I would ask anyone who either lives or was driving in the areas of Fords Road, Stenhouse Avenue and Stevenson Drive, along with surrounding streets, in the early hours of Thursday, March 7, and saw any vehicles driving erratically or at speed or any other suspicious behaviour, to get in touch with us at their earliest convenience.
"I would also ask anyone who has any private CCTV or dashcam footage in these areas that can assist with our investigation to come forward immediately and allow our officers to view it."
