This building was apparently constructed as a private chapel, but later opened up for public worship.

The original architects, J, W H & J M Hay were from Liverpool but designed a number of buildings in Scotland. The north aisle (on the left of the photograph above) was added by another architect, T G Leadbetter, in 1889. The well-known architect Robert Lorimer was responsible for adding a war memorial after World War I. More recently, the building was converted to a private house, by Gordon & Dey in 1980 according to ‘The Buildings of Scotland – Edinburgh’ (Gifford, McWilliam & Walker).
