Change of Name

In the 1880s, Bonaly Road and Bonaly Place  were built to give access to Merchiston Railway Station, the first station on the line heading SW from Princes Street Station.

In 1965 the streets were re-named Harrison Gardens and Harrison Place to avoid confusion with streets of the same  name at Bonaly Farm, Colinton, about 5 miles SW of the centre of Edinburgh.

Here is a view, today, looking east towards the centre of Edinburgh down the route of the former Caledonian Railway from the former Merchiston Station.
