Doggy Date to Lauriston Castle

We took Blue out to Lauriston Castle, a 16th century tower house in the Northwest part of Edinburgh. It’s about 45 minutes away by bus from the city centre, but it’s definitely a neat little spot to visit. We didn’t go in, but theyย do tours of the building, which has been preserved pretty much unchanged since 1926, which shows a glimpse of Edwardian (1901-1910) life in a Scottish country house.ย The groundsย and gardens are open to the public for free and is a really nice place to relax, have a picnic (if the weather is nice), and go for a nice walk.

The castle grounds are enclosed by a trail and a stone wall so we let Blue off leash.

This is Lauriston Castle.

And here’s a more close up version of the building.

We saw our friends David & Chloe from church at the park!

It’s nice to visit pretty places with this dog.

There are a few croquet lawns behind the castle.

Okay, I’m ready for the sun to come out now…
