EDINBURGH CASTLE

 
 


CASTLE PLAN

EDINBURGH CASTLE

ORDNANCE STORES & HOSPITAL

These buildings on the west side of the castle, were built to a design by William Skinner in 1753 and consisted of two storerooms for arms and military equipment built on either side of a courtyard.

It was in this courtyard that the main gunpowder magazine originally stood.

In 1897 this was demolished and the two storhouses were redesigned as a military hospital which was previously housed in the Great Hall.
