Lochend Park, with Easter Road Stadium in the background

Lochend is a mainly residential suburb of Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland. It is south of Leith and west of Restalrig, approximately two miles from the city centre, and consists largely of a 1930s public housing estate. Lochend Park is at the centre of the estate and contains Lochend Loch, from which the area takes its name. Notable buildings include the 19th century Lochend House, which contains surviving elements of Lochend Castle, demolished in the 16th century. A beehive doocot, associated with the castle, also survives from this period and is now in Lochend Park.[1]
