Dale Mailley, chef director of The Gardener’s Cottage, has revealed the name for his third Edinburgh restaurant

The Lookout by Gardener’s Cottage is a partnership with Collective.

The restaurant will be built on a cantilever so the restaurant will be partially suspended over Calton Hill’s northwest slope!

The Lookout by Gardener’s Cottage will feature floor to ceiling glass windows and promises panoramic views across Edinburgh and the Firth of Forth.

An opening date will be announced later this year.
