his 1834 plan above includes just a few
- Granton Castle (extreme left on the map)
Granton Castle, or Granton House as it
was formerly known, was standing beside the Firth of Forth in 1479.
The castle lay in ruin for many decades, then was demolished in 1928 when
the land on which it stood was bought be a firm of quarriers.
- Caroline Park (beside Granton Castle)
Caroline Park dates from around 1585. It
is still standing and is now in private ownership
- Cottage (centre of map)
I have not yet discovered which cottage
this was. I believe that it was probably demolished some time ago.
- Wardie (extreme right of map)
This building became Challenger Lodge,
and more recently, St Columba's Hospice.
- House (beside Wardie).
This building is Wardie House, a large
house dating from around 1666. Most of the house was demolished in
the 1950s, when it was in a poor state of repair. One corner of the
old house has survived and is now in private ownership.
