St Andrew's House
St Andrew's House
St Andrew's House is located in Regent Road, overlooking Waverley Station, the Canongate and Salisbury Crags beyond.

Built in 1939, it is preserved through a category 'A' listing as a significant example of an art deco style building. Previously it was home to the Scottish Office, which was transferred there, from London, through a process of limited devolution prior to World War II. The building included the offices of the Secretary of State for Scotland.

St. Andrew's House is now the principal office of the First Minister and the Scottish Government.
