Greyfriars Church Overview
This is a Parish church and the oldest building outside the core of the historic Old Town of Edinburgh. It was constructed in 1620, and the churchyard was used as a prison for fifteen hundred Covenanters captured in 1679 at the Battle of Bothwell Brig.

It is one of the best Edinburgh attractions that looks straight out of an artist's dream due to its impressive architecture and breathtaking design. The church contains memorials and is the final resting place of famous Scots, including poet William McGonagall, philanthropist Mary Erskine, and chemist Joseph Black.
