The “lost” Walled Garden on Corstorphine Hill was built for Hillwood House, a mansion adjacent to the garden, but due to lack of upkeep became overgrown with weeds and sections of the walls were in need of repair. Thankfully, local volunteers called “Friends of Corstorphine Hill” have done a marvellous job of restoring it and creating a wonderfully calm and inviting space. The project even featured on BBC Scotland’s Beechgrove Garden. As well as being visually beautiful, the garden has made a feature of its location by creating a microcosm of the vegetation found on Corstorphine Hill which is accessible to less-able individuals and provides an educational resource. To this day, the Walled Garden is looked after entirely by volunteers.
