134/365 - FOR SALE

Donaldson’s College building, West Coates, Edinburgh, was designed by the architect William Henry Playfair in 1851.

It was originally established as a school for poor and deaf children from the estate bequeathed by Sir James Donaldson, a successful Scottish printer and newspaper publisher.

There are plans currently in place to reopen the building as a hotel and conference centre.
