Presentation seats

Donate a presentation seat

You can donate a seat in memory of a loved one or in celebration of a visit you have enjoyed to Edinburgh. Seats can be in most of our parks, walkways and some city streets.

Contact us using the details below for information.

You donate the seat for the use of everyone who lives in or visits Edinburgh. Seats remain our property so we don't permit additions like

  • floral displays
  • pictures
  • keepsakes.


We don't have seats available in the following locations, but there is a waiting list. Please contact us to be added to this list.

  • Blackford Hill
  • Blackford Pond
  • Bonaly Park
  • Calton Hill
  • Princes Street
  • Princes Street Gardens
  • Saughton Gardens
  • The Hermitage of Braid though there are options in front of Hermitage House
  • The Water of Leith Walkway between Roseburn and Canonmills
  • Threipmuir Reservoir.

The location determines the type of seat.
