About McNeil Trust...
McNeil Trust Limited was founded 10th October 1946 with its purposes to provide a home in Scotland for Christian Science nursing. Refer to Ian Turner’s document.
In x the house Goodtrees at No 7 Kinellan Road, Edinburgh was purchased, and McNeil Trust welcomed their first residents/guests in x.
In 2012 Goodtrees was sold, and a new house built in the subdivided grounds. In 2013, NO 7a welcomed their first guests and the two residents moved across.
In December 2020, 7a Kinellan Road was sold and a two-bedroom flat was purchased in April 2021 in Simpson Loan, the Quartermile.
The building is one of four ‘turreted castles’ which graced the original pavilion-like Victorian Royal Infirmary buildings. They were designed by David Bryce and built between 1870 and 1879. They are now part of an impressive development dating from 2007 and designed by the architects, Norman Foster & Partners. The development provides 21st century living accommodation to the very highest standards.
The blend of the old and the new is comparable to that of both previous McNeil’s at No 7 and No 7A Kinellan Road. The new accommodation is a rare find.
