Old Saint Paul’s is an inclusive and welcoming church, just off the Royal Mile. Founded in 1689, it is the original Episcopal church of the city, and was once a Jacobite stronghold. The present 19th century building contains much of interest, such as the ironwork cross which once stood by the gallows, the last thing seen by condemned Jacobites; the WWI Memorial Chapel naming 150 men and 1 woman who died; and Alison Watt’s award-winning painting ‘Still’.
