Lauriston Castle

For those who want a break from city life, why not take a stroll around Lauriston Castle grounds. With great views of the Firth of Forth and an award-winning Japanese garden, it is a great place to take the family for the day. After being destroyed in the 1540s, this 16th century tower house was rebuilt by Sir Archibald Napier, father of the famous mathematician John Napier – the inventor of logarithms.
