Edinburgh Cub Pack in which park?
« on: Tuesday 20 January 15 10:33 GMT (UK) »
Hi

This is a cub pack from Carrick Knowe, Edinburgh.  Probably 1957.

I'm trying to identify the location - it looks like a public park, but the large Georgian-looking building with tower, behind the trees rules out Carrick Knowe Park And St Margaret's Park, Corstorphine.

It's unlikely to be far from West Edinburgh, as I certainly don't recall the occasion. Any Ideas?

Any chance it could be much earlier? Saughton Hall wasn't demolished until 1952 but a five year difference is a long time in cub pack membership terms!

No - I'm in the picture, and I reckon I'm 9, rather than 4!

Could it be Harrison Park with tenements in Harrison Road in the background?

I had a good Google around the Meadows, Kay, without spotting anything.

Don't think I've been to Harrison Park, Anne.  The buildings look 2-storey, rather than tenements.

Thanks.

It appears to have a wall round it, if that helps.  :-\

How about what's now the Dean Gallery, as viewed from Belford Road (west side of the building)?
