Forsyth's Close

FORSYTH'S CLOSE

Named in recognition of the property acquired here by Alexander Forsyth, a burgess of Edinburgh and a local coachmaker. Forsyth also owned stables and a coach house nearby, serving travellers from London.

Although public access is barred by the Gloucester Gate, the close still serves as an access point for military veterans who are accommodated in Whitefoord House which lies beyond.

Not open to the public.
