The 16th century Lauriston Castle boasts of its ornate gardens, Edwardian and Georgian art pieces and relics and the 19th century extensions which overlook the Firth of Forth. This four storied tower house is equipped with the circular tower with spiral staircase, gun loops and the two storied angel turrets. Designed by William Burn, the Jacobean Range gives the Lauriston Castle a look of country manor. The Japanese Garden sprawling over one hectare features ponds, overgrown shrubs and a bridge. The Bluebell woods and the monkey Puzzle Grove are also notable garden areas. From the three croquet lawns, you can enjoy the sweeping views of the Firth of Forth up to Fife.
