There have been public buildings on this site for centuries. The present one was inaugurated in 1904 for Midlothian County. Since September 2017, it houses the Institut fran?ais d?Ecosse and Consulate General of France in Scotland, serving as a centre for cultural exchanges in the very heart of the Old Town and civic centre of Edinburgh.
This year we have created a virtual tour on our YouTube channel, edited by Hamish Leeson and voiced by Dr. Jordan Girardin, containing some personal insights into our wonderful building’s history and the many different and unique spaces contained within.Go on a virtual guided tour!
Architect: James Gillespie Graham
