Looking at Lauriston today there is little to indicate the house had much to do with the 1700s, but what did happen? Neighbouring estates and farms, such as at Drylaw, were being built and developed, and as this happened can Lauriston’s own history be better understood?  

All events in our lecture series include an opportunity to meet the guest lecturer, coffee and cakes and a special tour of the Castle.
