Easter Craiglockhart Hill
Easter Craiglockhart Hill
Looking from the summit of the hill towards Napier University's Craiglockhart Campus. The oldest part of the Campus was built in 1877 as the Craiglockhart Hydropathic Institution. During World War One it was requisitioned by the army as a war hospital and it was in this building that in 1917 War Poets Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen met. Sadly Owen did not survive the War but Sassoon at the Wars end published both his own and Owens War Poems. The monstrous modern extension caused quite a bit of consternation when it was being planned and constructed.
