On the first Saturday of every month, Granton Castle Walled Garden is open to visitors for a couple of hours in the afternoon. Granton Castle itself stood on Edinburgh's shoreline. It was built in the 15thC, renovated in the 17thC and demolished in the 20thC, but the original Walled Garden and doocot survived through the centuries.

The garden is now managed by a local community group who are working towards making this unusual, beautiful and tranquil place productive once more and accessible to all.

Additional Dates: 06 June 2020
