It has not yet been revealed how the young boys ended up on the roof, as the City Chambers is located in the heart of Edinburgh’s Royal Mile.
The building entrance and courtyard have traditionally been heavily used by on-site security personnel to deal with any issues.
While the rear of the building is considered too strenuous and of an extreme height for two teenagers to casually climb up.
It is not known if this event is related in any way to others
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Police were called at 6:10 pm on September 28, but police were not obliged to attend as the incident was no longer ongoing.”
Edinburgh City Council has been contacted for comment.
