Celebrity Tombstone: Greyfriars Bobby, Greyfriars Kirkyard

When my husband and I were in Edinburgh on our honeymoon in 1982, a visit to Greyfriars Bobby's grave and memorial was one of our top priorities. The bottom photo is of his tombstone in Greyfriars Kirkyard (he is buried just inside the gate of Greyfriars Kirkyard, not far from the grave of John Gray, which Bobby is said to have guarded for the 14 years he survived John Gray). The top photo is of the Greyfriars Bobby pub and the middle photo is of the statue of Bobby in front of the pub.
