I stopped by the church by accident and was pleasantly surprised by an interesting visit. I didn't expect a 300+ year old church to be painted baby blue.

This is the east end of the Royal mile and everything here speaks about the history of great Edinburgh. Many courts and buildings to explore plus very close to the Holyrood and the Parliament.

A nice area to walk around in, not quite as full of sites as some of the rest of the Royal Mile, but not bad. As with much of the street becareful walking as often the road is uneven. Overall an enjoyable place to stroll along.

Worth wandering down the other end of the royal for a look around. A really under appreciated part of the city and really beautiful in spots.

We have been trying for 3 years to visit Canongate Kirk the church on Canongate and this year for the first time managed to time it just right. What a beautiful place it is. Surprisingly the pews are painted a pale blue colour and there are no stained glass windows but it works. A fabulous place well worth a visit. Not forgetting the volunteers who work there who are so proud to show your round. Thank you Jeanette!
