Simpson Loan is the core of the iconic Quartermile development. Inspired and architecturally designed by the renowned architect, Sir Norman Foster, the completed development encompasses marvellous examples of David Bryce’s Victorian Royal Infirmary buildings intermingled with Foster’s influential signature apartments – a paradigm of both outstanding and sympathetic design.

The vistas from both of the two terraces are incomparable, offering views of the entire magnificence of iconic Edinburgh and the countryside beyond.
