St Columba by the Castle Quiet Garden
Place of worship in Lothian - Scotland
Enjoy the view out towards the historic Grassmarket.
Name: Jenny Paton-Williams
Our garden is set in a spectacular location, nestling just below the castle and looking out over the historic Grassmarket and Heriots School. The local streets can be overwhelmingly hectic so many visitors appreciate our drop-in refuge. The garden is a south-facing, sheltered terrace run on insect-friendly, sustainable principles by Eco-Church volunteers. There are benches and some gentle prayer opportunities such as a Pebble- prayer pool.
Please note that there are steps and that the gate is on the corner of Victoria Terrace and Victoria Steps.
Our gate is open most afternoons from Easter to October except when there are private functions in the adjacent church-hall. Please contact us in good time if you would like certain access, a quiet conversation or a guided tour. Please note that there are steps and that the gate is on the corner of Victoria Terrace and Victoria Steps.
