18 December - Canongate Kirk
11am - 4pm
Canongate Kirk, The Kirk of Holyroodhouse and Edinburgh Castle, was founded in 1688. The architecturally unique design is by James Smith, with aisles and a cruciform plan. The finely built ashlar façade is in a Dutch architectural style and the luminous, columned baroque interior was wonderfully restored by Stewart Tod & Partners in 1947. Various notable memorials in the kirkyard include the graves of Adam Smith and Robert Fergusson.
There is a small shop, volunteers to answer questions and small exhibition centre.
