is located just to the west
of Edinburgh city centre
, it isn't actually an area as such but is known for its station
Haymarket Station was built in 1840, designed by John Miller. It is the oldest Scottish train station that is presently in anything like its original condition. It is a classical two-storey building with portico and a pleasant curved parapet clock. The trainshed from Haymarket was long moved to a new home in Bo'Ness.
The platforms at Haymarket are often cold, windy, wet and miserable, especially on days like today, what with the gale blowing through the tunnel!
