Greyfriars Kirkyard-Edinburgh

Greyfriars Kirkyard is the graveyard surrounding Greyfriars Kirk in Edinburgh, Scotland, and is in the hands of a separate trust from the church. For many people, the graveyard is associated primarily with Greyfriars Bobby, the loyal dog who guarded his master’s grave. Though Bobby’s headstone is at the entrance to the Kirkyard, he is actually buried at a grassy verge by a wall nearby, as the Kirk authorities would not allow his burial on consecrated ground. The dog’s famous statue is opposite the graveyard’s gate, at the junction of George IV Bridge, and Candlemaker Row. for more click here
