We went there because we wanted to see Bobby the loyal dog. It was an interesting place to visit, but only for a few minutes, really. At least for us it did not hold such great interest. However, there seemed to be a bit of...More

Nestled quietly and often missed, a few minutes in the graveyard looking at the magnificent stonework will affect your mood. Ironically I find it a contemplative rather than somber place, the eclectic carvings tell their own story of Edinburgh life. worth a visit -and not...More
Went early in the morning to the cemetery and it was quiet and beautiful. Make sure to notice the mausoleums that were built with bars around them to protect bodies from the grave diggers (resurrectionists) that would steal bodies to sell to the medical colleges!...More

Loved walking through this graveyard. We went there via a free walking tour and learnt about Bobby the dog, the gravediggers, the mound of bodies below, and the famous people buried there. Amzing views of the city and the Royal Mile.
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
