Greyfriars is to the south of the Royal Mile along George IV Bridge at the top Candlemaker Row. It is claimed that the graveyard and surrounding area is the most haunted place in the world and home to the Mackenzie poltergeist. The Mackenzie poltergeist shares the graveyard with one of the world’s most famous dogs, Greyfriars Bobby, who died here on the 14th January 1872 after spending over 14 years at his master John Gray’s graveside. Greyfriars Kirkyard is the graveyard for many notable figures including the poet Allan Ramsay and the architect of the New Town James Craig. William McGonagall the ‘World’s Worst Poet’ is buried in an unmarked grave in the cemetery. This graveyard is famous for being the most haunted place in the world due in part to the Covenanter’s Prison and the Mackenzie poltergeist which is known as ‘The Ghost That Haunted Itself‘. The Greyfriars Bobby Statue at the corner of George IV Bridge and Candlemaker Row is one of the most photographed locations in Edinburgh. Just inside the graveyard itself is Greyfriars Bobby Grave where many visitors leave flowers and toys in his memory. Across from the corner at Candlemaker Row is Greyfriars Kirk, a parish kirk of the Church of Scotland, which stands on site of the Franciscan order of ‘Grey Friars’ where it takes it’s name. Building began on Greyfriars Kirk in 1602 and it was completed in 1620. The congregation united with Highland Tolbooth St. John’s Church in 1979 and is the only Church of Scotland congregation in the east of Scotland with regular services in Gaelic. The Kirk also holds regular orchestral and choral concerts.
