Holy Corner

A notable intersection in S Central Edinburgh, Holy Corner lies 1¼ miles (2 km) south southwest of the city centre and represents the junction of Bruntsfield Place, Morningside Road, Colinton Road and Chamberlain Road. Once known as Burghmuirhead, it takes its popular name from the churches built on each corner; namely Morningside United Church (built as Morningside Congregational Church in 1927, on the site of a United Presbyterian Church built in 1863), Morningside Baptist Church (built as Morningside Free Church by William McGibbon & Thomas Ross 1872), Christ Church Morningside (by Hippolyte J. Blanc, 1878) and North Morningside United Presbyterian Church (built 1881, now the Eric Liddell Centre).
