Meeting up with friends in Edinburgh, and a perfect opportunity to re-visit some architectural delights. The former Tolbooth Church is wonderfully sited and a beautifully detailed Gothic creation. Built in 1839/1844 by James Gillespie Graham and the 'King Of Gothic' A.W.N.Pugin.

Log #250! Not much to say about this one, nice enough church on the corner of Castlehill and Johnston Terrace. Time to head for my meeting after a quick change of clothes in Waverley station. [ExP-187/MiP-9/Rev-2/BM-14/IS-30/Other-8]

The former Tolbooth Kirk stands off of Castlehill at the top of the Royal Mile in the Old Town of Edinburgh. The congregation had been notable for its services in Gaelic as well as English. The building is now "The Hub", the home of the Edinburgh International Festival. Its octagonal spire is the tallest in Edinburgh. It is a Grade A listed building and is within the boundary of Edinburgh’s World Heritage Site.
