An exciting blueprint detailing an overhaul to museums and galleries in the historic heart of Edinburgh has been unveiled.
Designed to raise the profile of the Scottish capital`s world city of literature status, the plans include bringing unused buildings back to life as cultural spaces.
A neglected 15th-century church transforming into a vibrant arts venue, adding more permanent gallery space to display more of the country`s hidden treasures and using an historic courtyard to create a writer`s residence are all planned in the city council`s masterplan.
The Tron Kirk – a former principal parish church in Edinburgh – will also benefit from the plans, becoming a heritage and culture centre within the next four years.
The news will be welcomed by thousands of art and history buffs who head to Edinburgh hotels
throughout the year, with the city considered by many as the cultural capital of Europe.
Come and explore the raft of galleries and museums available to visitors whilst taking a memorable Christmas break.
