Sir Richard Branson, Virgin Group Founder said: “What better place than right here in Edinburgh? My grandparents were from Edinburgh. My wife, Joan, is Scottish – and the city holds a very special place in my heart.”

The property will be a stunning mix of old and new reflecting the city’s eclectic and energetic style, while remaining true to its historic heritage. Edinburgh has so much to offer as a top travel destination in the UK.
