One thing that Edinburgh has no shortage of is good looking ornate churches, and this 18th century contemporary style building is just another sweet addition to hold with the architectural ambiance in the city.

I did not like so much, perhaps one of the many attractions that I saw in Edinburgh this is the one that I enjoyed less. The building all in all it is simple with its high clock tower, maybe its decent colored spire towering mighty city. If you walk around this spot perhaps you might give an eye on it... More

This lovely church is located at the end of a line of 3 or possibly 4 storey buildings, but the church towers over the surrounding architecture impressively. This church was particularly community-minded, with volunteers actively encouraged. The church is nicely located just to the west of the city centre, and is easily combined with a trip to the Cathedral Church... More

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
