The Quaich Project

A SPACE FOR ALL IN THE HEART OF EDINBURGH

 

The Quaich Project at West Princes Street Gardens represents the next evolutionary chapter in the story of one of Edinburgh’s most famous landmark locations. Our vision is to reimagine this historic place as a space for all to celebrate and enjoy in new ways – with dynamic architectural designs and innovative facilities – all the time being respectful to the people, wildlife, landscape and heritage of Scotland’s capital.

Like the traditional Scottish sharing cup from which it takes its name, The Quaich Project aims to bring people together to celebrate Edinburgh’s status as one the world’s most beautiful, welcoming and vibrant capitals – generating new connections both locally and internationally.
