Castles and Ruins

Lauriston Castle is located just about half a mile from my in-laws house. Stephen and I regularly visit the property when we are in the area since it is an easy walk in any weather. Today we lucked out with sunshine.

The property overlooks the Firth of Forth as well as Crammond which is an old Roman port. It is a lovely part of the city that appears untouched by time.

There is also a lovely Kyoto Friendship Garden that was installed in 2002.

Here is a detail of some kind of fountain on the property that has the date1672 carved in its crest.
