An Edinburgh couple are celebrating their first Christmas in their new home – with a little help from Housing Minister Kevin Stewart.

The Minister popped in to say hello to Dunedin Canmore tenants Mary and John Stewart in their new home in Muirhouse in north Edinburgh.

Mary and John, along with their 17-year old grandson Cameron, moved in to their new home – one of 80 new, energy-efficient homes in the development – in July.

The new homes in Muirhouse are a mix of one and two-bedroom flats, traditional four-in-a-block flats, and large family houses.

A total of 64 of the homes are for social rent, while 16 are for mid-market rent, let and managed by Dunedin Canmore’s partners in Wheatley Group, Lowther Homes.
