The Edinburgh suburb of Restalrig still retains vestiges of its medieval past. Once the principal seat of the Logan Clan, this Scottish town is dotted with 15th century structures as well as more modern residential tower blocks. This was where Richard III of England camped after invading Berwick-upon-Tweed and the place that James IV of Scotland often visited in order to pay his respects to St. Triduana. Visitors to Restalrig can enjoy seeing a bit of history and relaxing on its scenic grassy knolls or playing a round of golf at the 18-hole Craigentinny Golf Course.
- Visit the oldest building in this area of Edinburgh, the shrine of St Triduana, which is attached to historic Restalrig parish church built was built in the 15th century.
- Make sure to check out the remains of the Logan Clan’s Lochend Castle, also known as Restalrig Castle, which is now incorporated into the 19th century Lochend House run by the City of Edinburgh Council.
- Take a stroll around the scenic Lochend Loch, which has supplied Leith with water over several centuries and features beautiful paths and lawns to enjoy.
Getting to Restalrig from the city of Edinburgh and Waverley Train Station is very easy. Any taxi will take visitors there within 20 minutes, and there is also regular bus service connecting the suburb to the centre.
