Greyfriars Bobby

Posted by Picasa
Sunday turned out to be dry so I went out with my camera to take some pictures of my A-Z of Edinburgh. G is for Greyfriars, a part of Edinburgh in the medieval old town. There is the most fascinating graveyard at Greyfriars Kirk. Most people know the story of Greyfriars Bobby, the famous Skye Terrier who was so devoted to his master John Gray, that for fourteen years Bobby lay on John Gray's grave only leaving for food. The inscription on John Gray's grave reads:
"John Gray - died 1858 - Auld Jock - Master of Greyfriars Bobby - Even in his ashes most beloved"
This photo collage is about that story. If you click on the pictures you will get a closer look.
