The ageing Ross Bandstand in Princes Street Gardens is set to be sold off to a private company in a move which would see it turned into a year-round arts venue and bring the council a multi-million cash boost.

City leaders are in talks about working with private firms to see long-awaited redevelopment plans finally get moving.

It is hoped that the move could lead to it being used for more open-air music concerts and also comedy and theatre performances.
