Museum of Edinburgh

Huntly House, 142 Canongate, Royal Mile, Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh, EH8 8DD

The Museum of Edinburgh, a free treasure trove of iconic items from Scotland’s past, sits on Canongate in the city. The museum houses important collections relating to the history of the city from pre-historic times right up until the present day, probably one of the most important being the National Covenant, the charter demanding religious freedoms and signed in 1638. However, old softies that we are, we love the Greyfriars Bobby section best which tells the tale of the little Skye terrier who belonged to a local policeman and who stood vigil on his grave after he died in 1858 for 14 years – you can see his little feeding bowl and collar on display. But there’s much more to explore besides, with stunning Scottish pottery and elegant Edinburgh silver and glass to admire plus Scottish porcelain from the 1760s.
