Biographical / Historical
Like the estates of neighbouring Niddry and Duddingston, there had been coal on the Edmonstone estate.
In the 1940s the roof of Edmonstone House was removed by surviving family in an effort to escape taxation and it subsequently fell into decay.
Today, Edmonstone is part of suburban and built-up Edinburgh and close to the outer ring road.
