Corstorphine Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Edinburgh & The Lothians...

With splendid views across the Firth of Forth, this area lies west of Edinburgh city centre and dates back to the Middle Ages.

It is home to the ever-popular Edinburgh Zoo. All that remains of Corstorphine Castle is a rare dovecote shaped like a beehive.

It was near this spot that a notorious murder took place in the 17th century.
