About the garden

Lauriston Castle is a multi award-winning venue in North Edinburgh. The castle is set in spectacular gardens hugging the sea-shore. You can enjoy a woodland walk, a visit to the award-winning Japanese garden, or step back in time and experience what life was like in an Edinburgh middle-class home at the beginning of the 20th century.
