"I saw your photo off the remains of the wall close to where Granton castle used to stand.

Edinburgh Waterfront  -   The remains of Granton Castle Wall and two gasometers  -  5 March 2003

If I recall, when I was a teenager I am almost certain that there was a tunnel passageway that we went into near the dirt road, at the east end of the road facing south."


"I remember a small group of us went into it to find out where it would go.  We eventually came across an old type of solid wooden door  -  the type that would have built around the 16th century.

Of course we tried to open it, shoulder it,  but to avail."


"Do this know anything about this?"
