Merchiston Community Council serves the area bounded by Newbattle Terrace in the south, Whitehouse Loan and to include the west side of Leamington Terrace in the east, Dundee Street and Slateford Road to the north and Gray’s Loan and Cowan Road in the west. As well as the tenement and villa areas we have the Shandon and Ashley Terrace Colonies and the Thorneil Village with a few modern build areas, primarily along the canalside. So, very diverse housing stock is available within our boundaries. Our boundary doesn’t match City Council or Parliamentary boundaries. The map below should give you an idea of what streets are within our boundary.
