Look down on creation

WHEN your restaurant commands dramatic views of the Scottish capital, it makes sense to make the city skyline into a design feature.

That was the approach taken for the design of new Edinburgh restaurant The Lookout by Gardener’s Cottage.

The eatery, which is part of the redeveloped City Observatory site on Calton Hill, features floor to ceiling windows that provide panoramic views over the city and the Firth of Forth.

The restaurant is operated by chef director Dale Mailley in partnership with arts organisation Collective.
