Fodor's Review

This section of the Royal Mile takes its name from the canons who once ran the abbey at Holyrood. Canongate—in Scots, gate means "street"—was originally an independent town, or burgh, another Scottish term used to refer to a community with trading rights granted by the monarch. Here you'll find Canongate Kirk and its graveyard, Canongate Tolbooth, and the Museum of Edinburgh.
