Lauriston is an area of central Edinburgh, Scotland. The former location of the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, the area is undergoing a major re-development known as Quartermile. New apartments, restaurants, hotels and offices are planned.
Lauriston is adjacent to The Meadows, a large public park in the centre of Edinburgh, and is home to Edinburgh College of Art. It was formerly home to the headquarters of the Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue Service and its Museum of Fire - the fire station is now part of Edinburgh College of Art.
George Heriot's School is located on Lauriston Place opposite the Quartermile development.
The original and second (but not present) buildings of George Watson's College were also in Lauriston.
