The History of Leith

craig-moil-ard of antiquity

On the summit of an eminence, visible from the
whole surrounding country—the craig-moil-ard of
antiquity (the high bare rock, no doubt, it once was)
—stands the venerable Castle of Craigmillar, with a
history nearly as long as that of Holyrood, and
which is inseparably connected with that of Edinburgh,
having its silent records of royalty and
rank—its imperishable memories of much that has
perished for ever.
