Church Hill, Edinburgh
Church Hill is the name of a street and small surrounding area in Edinburgh. It lies immediately to the north of Morningside and south of Bruntsfield; technically it is part of Burghmuirhead, together with Holy Corner. All of Burghmuirhead was once part of the lands of Greenhill. The original Burghmuirhead House remains at the end of a lane on the west side of Morningside Road near Church Hill (the street) itself. To the west is Merchiston and east are Greenhill and The Grange.
Church Hill Theatre uses a former church building close to the top of the hill itself. The rest of the area is made up of Georgian and Victorian villas, and Victorian tenements, often with shops at ground-floor level.
