The former Tron Church was built in 1636//47 (the spire was added in 1671) with a major reconstruction in 1785/87, plus Victorian additions along the way,

Tron Kirk stands in Hunter Square at the junction of High Street and South Bridge on the Royal Mile in the Old Town of Edinburgh. It was completed in 1647. The original wooden spire was replaced in 1829 after it was destroyed by a fire. It closed as a church in 1952. The site is traditionally the centre of the city’s Hogmanay celebrations. It is a Grade A listed building and is within Edinburgh’s World Heritage Site.
