Edinburgh, Lothian, Scotland
Greyfriars is one of the oldest buildings outside Edinburgh's Old Town. It was here in 1638 that the National Covenant was signed, and also here in 1679 that over 1200 Covenanters were imprisoned. Look for the family memorial of Sir Walter Scott (though the author is not buried here) and a memorial to architect Robert Adam. Outside the kirk is a monument to Greyfriar's Bobby, the 19th century Skye terrier who stayed by his master's grave for 14 years.
