Visit Edinburgh Castle Dog Cemetery
The final resting place of soldiers' loyal canine companions.
Off the main path at Edinburgh Castle, a small garden space holds a soldiers’ dog cemetery dating back to 1840.
The site of the cemetery may have once been a tower, but it now acts as the final resting place for honored canine companions of the regimental officers. Visitors cannot enter the cemetery, but it can be viewed from above.
