A hidden gem in Edinburgh
Join me, your local guide, in discovering this mid-19th century cemetery situated in Warriston, the Edinburgh district just north of the New Town.
Home to many thousands of graves, it was the first garden cemetery of Edinburgh and therefore known initially as "The Edinburgh Cemetery".
Sited in the Inverleith Conservation Area, it is also a designated Local Nature Conservation Site. The cemetery is protected as a Category A listed building.
It is the final resting place of many interesting Scottish characters, scientists, politicians, eminent medical men and we will explore this totally hidden, quirky gem in the capital together during a leisurely stroll.
Meet in the City Centre, then take the local bus to the cemetery where we stroll around and then head up the hill back into town.
