Built in 1904, this category B listed church was designed by P McGregor Chalmers whose links with Iona Abbey are reflected in the nave with clerestory, apses and the curved arches of Romanesque Architecture. Of interest are the stone font and biblical texts carved into the walls. Extended in 1935 by J. Jeffrey Waddell the church and halls are the centre of activity for Blackhall. The organ built by David Hamilton for Old Greyfriars was extensively rebuilt by Sandy Edmonstone.

Although the school has been in existence since 1904, the building on Viewforth opened in 1913 to replace the first, smaller Boroughmuir on Bruntsfield Links. It is an inspiring grand building which was seen as cutting edge design internationally when it opened. This building is to be closed in 2016 when Boroughmuir will relocate to a new school at Fountainbridge. Boroughmuir was the Sunday Times Scottish State School of the Year 2012.

Constructed in just a few weeks in 1922 as Edinburgh’s Industrial Exhibition Hall, the building played host to many large national shows in the 1920s, including the Scottish Motor Show and Edinburgh’s Christmas Fun Fair. The building became a bus garage in 1926 and was extended in 1933 and 1963 to accommodate the ever expanding fleet of buses.
