Lauriston Castle Gardens

Lauriston Castle is more of a stately home than a castle




The house is set in lovely walled gardens that are always worth a wander round.


You can look our over the fields of Silverknowes to the Firth of Forth and Cramond Island

Recently a bee hive has been added to the gardens

though it was too early in the year for the bees to be at work yet!

The Japanese Friendship Garden is a  lovely part of the grounds

and the witch hazel is already in bloom


 You can see photos from our previous visits to Lauriston Castle here.

Sure there was a Lauriston Hall near Kirkudbright that was a weird hippy commune
