17 fascinating Edinburgh photographs of lost buildings we can't believe are no longer standing

Edinburgh is rightly regarded among the most beautiful cities in the entire world – and our fair city regularly tops lists of the best places to live.

A designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, Scotland’s picture-postcard capital is recognised for its stunning architecture, from the historic Old Town to the classical Georgian New Town.

Take a look through our photo gallery to find 19 examples of Edinburgh buildings we wish were still standing.
