Just an amazing church and graveyard. One of first places we walked through, just below Edinburgh castle. Just so much history on these grounds. Has an eerie feel to it.

Stepping off the busy road we entered a tranquil space beautifully placed in sylvan surrounds. As we walked the pathway through the trees and the Kirkyard the wonderful aspect and facade of the church came into view. A number of fine sculptures adorn the outside,...More

I followed the sound of the bells on Sunday and found this lovely old church with its own ancient graveyard at the foot of Edinburgh Castle. I was pleased with the calm woodland atmosphere which feels far away from the busy city noise and traffic....More

Wandered through by pure chance but glad we did. Huge grace stones and grace 'plaques' if that is how you describe the large headstones on the walls?! Best of all, visit after dark. We took the Bus Ghost Tour, but you can go there anytime...More

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
