12 great photos of Edinburgh's Tynecastle High School over the years

Pictures from the 112-year-old Edinburgh high school

Tynecastle High School was opened in 1912, and was for its first 98 years located at 15 McLeod Street, before moving across the road to its current premises in 2010.

The former B-listed building remains in place despite closing its doors more than 14 years ago, with plans in place to turn the site into flats.

We’ve taken a look into our photo archive to find 12 great photos of the Gorgie high school over the years. Former pupils include footballers Jason Cummings, Paul Hanlon and Gary Mackay, politician Keith Brown, as well as actors Steven McNicoll and Ian Richardson.

Wilfred Owen, the First World War poet, taught at Tynecastle for three weeks in 1917 when he was a patient at nearby Craiglockhart Hospital.
