Shandon, Edinburgh - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Coordinates: 55°55′59″N 003°13′46″W / 55.93306°N 3.22944°W / 55.93306; -3.22944 (Shandon)

Shandon is an area of Edinburgh within North Merchiston approximately three miles west of the centre of Edinburgh. It is bounded by Slateford Road to the north, Harrison Road to the east, the Union Canal to the south and the Glasgow-Edinburgh (via Slateford) and Suburban rail lines to the west.

Harris[1] states that the name is presumably related to Shandon on the Gareloch, near Helensburgh. Robert Napier (1791–1876) the famous marine engineer built the mansion of West Shandon at Shandon, Dumbartonshire in 1851 situated on the east shore of the Gareloch. The present Napier family is represented by Ian Patrick Robert Napier M.C. of Milton House, Bowling, Dumbartonshire. The family business is shipbuilding and ship-owning. There does not seem to be a connection with the Napier family of Merchiston on whose ground the Edinburgh streets were constructed and a mistake could have occurred here in tracing the history of the wrong "Napier" in selecting names for these streets.
