Mercat Cross and St Giles Cathedral.
Mercat Cross and St Giles Cathedral.
St Giles' earliest parts date from the 14th Century and today it dominates the Royal Mile. John Knox preached here in Reformation times and the kirk was also the scene of Jenny Geddes famously hurling a stool at the Dean who was reading from the imposed Anglican prayer book.
