Police Investigate After Human Remains Found

Police are investigating the discovery of human remains in the grounds of a property.

The remains - reportedly a woman's skull - were found off Gogarstone Road in Edinburgh.

Several holes of Gogarburn Golf Club were shut as teams searched the area following Saturday's discovery.

The property in question is the 19th century manor Gogar Mount House, according to the Daily Record.

The six-bedroom home, set on a 22-acre estate, sold for £4 million a decade ago and in recent years was available to rent for £4,000 a month.

A Police Scotland spokesman said: "Officers were called to Gogarstone Road at around 4pm on Saturday following the discovery of human remains within the grounds of a property.

"A detailed forensic examination is now under way to establish the full circumstances surrounding this, and further updates will be provided when available.''

Golf club secretary Kenneth Brown told the Record: "The police expanded the search on to the golf course on Monday.

"We've got scrub land between the ninth fairway and the estate boundary.

"We've closed the seventh, eighth and ninth holes while they're here.''
