Lauriston Castle
2a Cramond Road South, Davidson's Mains, EH4 5QD Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Lauriston Castle is a stunning Edwardian home, hugging the coast at Silverknowes. You can explore the gardens free of charge or join us for a guided tour of the beautiful Edwardian interior. Experience life in Edwardian times in Edinburgh's very own Downton Abbey.

The collections at Lauriston Castle were assembled by Lauriston’s last residents, Mr and Mrs W. R. Reid, and Mrs Reid’s brother Mr William Barton. They shared an understanding that the last of them surviving would leave the house, grounds and contents in Trust to the Nation, and so after the death of Mrs Reid in 1926 the Castle became a museum.

Lauriston’s last residents epitomised the Scottish Edwardian wealthy middle class. They were cultured, widely-travelled, and were all born in Edinburgh, into families of established local businesses.
