VIEWS across the Scottish capital from Waverley Square, a new luxury development, are coming into focus as the apartments take shape.

The city centre site that sits next to Waverley Station will offer 66 one, two and three-bedroom apartments, penthouses and mews, many with views across Edinburgh’s world-famous skyline on completion.

The development, where you can secure a three-bedroom apartment for £755,000, also has private basement parking "floor-to-ceiling windows, vast living spaces" and a landscaped communal courtyard.
