Great to see some updates on this beautiful city!
Random question but is the stone used in many of Edinburghs old buildings naturally this dark tone or is this just the result of pollution that hasnt been cleaned yet?

I think the stone used is sandstone, which is naturally very light and means it shows up pollution and weathering very easily, which is why it looks dark and grey on many buildings.

I quite like it though, like on the Scotts Monument and St Andrews House, they look ominous and kind of spooky with the pollution and weathering

Yeh its nice for monuments imo but it can be a bit dreary and overbearing when whole residential streetscapes are that colour, coupled with typical scottish weather
