Gilmerton Cove

It’s not just Edinburgh’s Old town that has spooky vaults, you can fine one in Gilmerton, about 4 miles southeast of the city.  There you will find a wee surprise lurking under the ground.

Gilmerton Cove is a series of underground passageways and chambers hand carved from sandstone, dating from the 18th century.  Folklore claims it was the work of an 18th century local blacksmith ‘George Paterson’.

However it’s original use is still a mystery theories claim that it was simply a drinking den for gentry, perhaps a refuge for persecuted Covenanters or smugglers? some even link this site to the Knight Templars (Imaginative folk who haven’t seen a map claim that there could be a secret passage leading to Melrose Abbey)
