Huntly House-Edinburgh (Now a museum)

(c) John Arthur
The Museum of Edinburgh is home to important collections relating to the history of Edinburgh, from prehistoric times to the present day. If you know the story of ‘ Greyfriars Bobby ‘, you will be thrilled to see his collar and feeding bowl, and the original plaster model for the bronze statue in Candlemaker Row.
One of the museum’s great treasures is the National Covenant, signed by Scotland’s presbyterian leadership in 1638, while the collections of Scottish pottery and items relating to Field Marshal Earl Haig are of national importance. for more click here
