Edinburgh’s most iconic department stores could be turned into a new flagship hotel after being put up for sale with a £13.7 million price tag.
The site has been a department store since Maule & Son opened in 1894.
In an exclusive from the Edinburgh Evening News, the sale was been described as a “unique opportunity” to snap up one of the most iconic buildings on Princes Street, which has been home to a Frasers store since 1976.
