Edinburgh tours and history articles of various aspects on Edinburgh & Scotland

Greyfriars Graveyard Edinburgh

Hear of the very beginnings of Greyfriars. Meet George who died in the early 1600’s. Why do we still talk about him today? Learn the full story of Greyfriars Bobby and visit the mausoleum of one of the finest architectural dynasties in the history of Scotland. A fantastic advert for the family business you’ll discover!

I’ll also show you where the man who greeted William of Orange on the beach at Torbay lies at rest and tell you his story.  You’ll also see where hundreds of people were forced to end their lives in cruelty. Even a story of the barbaric trade in slaves Scotland took part in.

From medieval lifestyles to heart-warming stories and accounts of extreme cruelty, Greyfriars has it all. Come with me and together we shall unveil its’ secrets.
