Statement of Interest

Former Edinburgh Savings Bank, then Trustee Savings Bank, imaginatively converted to restaurant use by Malcolm Fraser Architects (Civic Trust Award 1998). A landmark building, with its highly visible idiosyncratic clock tower, on a prominent site beside the bridge and the Water of Leith. The bridge, originally a timber construction, was rebuilt in stone in 1786, widened and strengthened in 1830, and rebuilt in its present form in 1900.
