Visiting Greyfriars Kirk in Edinburgh where Greyfriars-Bobby’s grave is situated. Bobby, a loyal dog of John Gray a night watchman for Edinburgh’s City Police in the 19th century. This lovely story shows us how loyal our wonderful pets are especially our dogs. #macthewestie #skyeterrier #terriersofinstagram #greyfriarskirkyard #greyfriarskirk #greyfriarsbobby #edinburgh #scotland #loyal #dogs #visitscotland #scotlandscaptial #doglovers #dogsscotland #westies #westielife #beautifulscotland #loyal #loyalpets #loyaldogs #lovelystory #scottishhistory #devotion #greyfriarscemetery #scottishtourism #skyeterriersofig #skyeterriersofinstagram 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

Edinburgh Castle basking in the sun. ☀️🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 I love the view of the castle from the Greyfriars Kirkyard. It is a haunting, yet beautiful and historic site, that will inspire anyone to want to become a writer.

Since I was in Edinburgh, we decided to take a brief detour to Greyfriars Kirkyard. I could tell you it was because of Greyfriars Bobby, but this is not the account to come to for soppy animal interest stories. No, we went there to see the thing in my photo. Its an early 1800s mortsafe, a wrought iron cage designed to stop the more unscrupulous citizens of Edinburgh digging up the freshly dead to supply the ananotmical schools. If you don't know what an unscrupulous person looks like, there is a perfect example in the immediate background. Its my sister and I vouch for her (lack of) character. . . . #edinburgh #greyfriars #greyfriarsbobby #greyfriarskirkyard #kirkyard #kirk #church #churchyard #grasssmarket #grassmarketedinburgh #mortesafe #scotland #UK #lockawayyourdead

Greyfriars Kirkyard, Edinburgh. By far, one of the best places I've ever visited. My obsession with all things paranormal and belief in spirits was definitely confirmed whilst visiting the graveyard!! Its reputation of being the most haunted graveyard in the world doesn't surprise me! Can't wait to return! #greyfriars #graveyard #edinburgh #greyfriarskirk #mausoleum #tomb #greyfriarsbobby #grave #mackenziepoltergeist #scotland #ghosttour #haunted #paranormal #cemetary #birthday #explore #travelgram #ig_travel #edinburghsnapshots #explorepage #gooutside #outdoors #nighttime #edinburghcity #cityofthedead #travelphotography #history #blog #lightsout #greyfriarskirkyard

The statue dedicated to & pub named after Greyfriars Bobby. Bobby was a Skye terrier belonging to a man named John Gray. When Mr. Gray died & was interred in Greyfriars Kirkyard, Bobby refused to leave his gravesite. He resided in Greyfriars for the next fourteen years, being fed & provided for by locals who were accustomed to his presence until he died. The statue commemorates the little dog & his exceptional loyalty. Some say the ghost of Bobby still roams Greyfriars Kirkyard, occasionally generating a disembodied barking sound. We decided to have dessert in Bobby's pub. :) #nofilter #noedit #travel #uk2019 #scotland2019 #uk #scotland #trips #yay #fun #adventure #pretty #edinburgh #greyfriarskirkyard #greyfriarsbobby #greyfriarsbobbypub #scottishpubs #scottishpub #dogs #ghostdogs #ghoststories #mythsandlegends

Greyfriars's infamous "black tomb," burial site of George Mackenzie. The poltergeist's ire is said to have been raised when a homeless man busted into the tomb for shelter & was promptly assaulted by an angry Scottish ghost. Others who have entered the tomb over the years have allegedly experienced injury from scratches & bites all the way up to broken bones. #nofilter #noedit #travel #uk2019 #scotland2019 #uk #scotland #trips #yay #fun #adventure #pretty #edinburgh #greyfriarskirkyard #cemeteries #creepy #architecture #theblacktomb #ghoststories #mackenzietomb
