Corstorphine Parish Church (Collegiate Church of St. John the Baptist)
Located in Kirk Loan, towards the eastern end of the old Corstorphine village (Edinburgh) is Corstorphine Parish Church. It was built in the late 14th Century by Sir Adam Forrester (d. 1405) next to the original early 12th Century St. Mary's Parish Church, the latter demolished in 1646 to make way for the north transept of the current building. Forrester's church was dedicated to St. John the Baptist. It was extended to form a collegiate church by Sir Adam's son Sir John and both were buried within the church
