Merchiston Community Council serves the area bounded by Newbattle Terrace in the south, Gray’s Loan and Cowan Road in the west and Dundee Street and Slateford Road to the north. The boundary to the east traverses Whitehouse Loan and most of Leamington Terrace/Road; it was recently adjusted to extend further north at the top end of Leamington Terrace. In addition to 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.
The zoomable map below shows the current boundaries.
