Greyfriars Kirk, today Greyfriars Tolbooth & Highland Kirk, is a parish kirk (church) of the Church of Scotland in central Edinburgh. The kirk stands on the site of a pre-Reformation establishment of the Franciscan order, the “Grey Friars”.

It is one of the oldest surviving buildings built outside the Old Town of Edinburgh, having been begun in 1602 and completed circa 1620. It sits to the south of The Grassmarket, adjacent to the rear of George Heriot’s School, itself founded in 1628. For many years, Greyfriars Kirk was divided into two places of worship — Old Greyfriars (erected 1614) and New Greyfriars (erected 1718).

Greyfriars Kirk is an Historic Scotland Category A Listed Building (HB Number 27018).

The Old and New Towns of Edinburgh are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    lovely shot, Tom! I’ve only ever observed it from the other (Bobby & Auld Jock) side, shame on me. B

  • Hehe, Bobby has made this place very famous Bron, but the kirk and the kirkyard are worth looking at too, there is an enormous amount of history there. Bobby and Auld Joak are relatively recent history …
