Celtic Connections: The Playfair at Donaldson’s, Edinburgh

Scotland as a whole is highly sought after as the countryside varies dramatically and all purchasers have their own preferences

One of the most iconic buildings in Edinburgh just moments from Haymarket station, this former college is set amidst 18 acres of grounds dominated by the central Playfair building. A stunning quadrangular construction built in the 1840s, it is designed in the style of an Elizabethan palace.

Now sensitively restored, this majestic building has been converted into a range of outstanding apartments and communal spaces; all within a landscaped setting. Apartments range from studios to three-bedroom residences and marry the best of the old and the new, with a mix of original features such as large historic windows, fireplaces and cornices, alongside a contemporary specification. Facilities include underground parking, full use of the maintained grounds and a concierge service.

From £252,500 / €277,260 / $310,950 – £1.695m / €1.86m / $2.09m
