FREE PIC- Merchants’ Court bespoke housing development for frail and elderly, Liberton, Edinburgh, 02/04/2015:
£5.8m Merchants’ Court Liberton housing development boosts independence and quality of life for Edinburgh’s frail and elderly.

Merchants’ Court has been built in two phases with the first phase of 32 flats completed in May 2014 and officially opened by HRH The Princess Royal in September 2014. The second phase of a further block of 16 flats completed in March 2015 will see its first tenants move in later this month (April 2015).
