Liberton Tower reopens following extensive roof repairs

12 January 2012

Liberton Tower reopens following extensive roof repairsFifteenth-century Liberton Tower, near Edinburgh, has reopened to guests following extensive roof repairs.

Vivat Trust have announced the reopening of Liberton Tower near Edinburgh, following extensive repairs to its roof. Laura Norris, Director at Vivat, said: 'We had to close the tower to guests in 2009 due to the leaking roof. Unfortunately the roof voids had not been properly secured in the original restoration and combined with recent harsh winters, this has now necessitated an extensive programme of works. We are excited to be able to reopen the building, as it was previously one of Vivat’s most popular properties, located just two miles from the centre of Edinburgh.'
