Edinburgh University

Appleton Tower

Tower block on edge of George Square belonging to Edinburgh University. A busy hub for students, with cafe and internet centre. Its facilities are used extensively by the community at large.

Old College Quad

Edinburgh University was founded in 1582 at the site occupied by Old College Quadrangle. The original buildings were destroyed 200 hundred years later, making room for the splendid buildings that you see now around the immaculately kept carpet of grass.
