Dreghorn Castle no longers exists and it is now the site of Dreghorn Barracks. The estate also covered the area which became Redford Barracks and the death of Colonel Bland in 1897 roughly ties in with the date the War Office bought the estate as a training area for troops based in Edinburgh.

Thanks

Adam
