Lauriston Castle was built outside Edinburgh during the 16th century as a tower house which was very common to build in Scotland during this period. The tower was extended and reformed as a castle during the 19th century and it was used as a residence for many famous Scots.

Today, Lauriston is owned by the Edinburgh City Hall who decided to open it to the public. It is located in the countryside and has a 30 acre park, a rose garden and a Japanese garden.
