Old Photograph Parish Church Colinton Scotland


Old photograph of the Parish Church and cemetery on Dell Road in Colinton located South West of the centre of Edinburgh, Scotland. A church has stood on the site for approximately 1000 years, but the current building was constructed and opened in 1908. The current church was rebuilt in 1907 by the architect Sydney Mitchell. The church incorporates the tower from the old church, which had been designed by David Bryce and built in 1837. Robert Louis Stevenson spent the summers of his childhood at the church manse when his grandfather was the village's Parish Minister; the philanthropist James Gillespie; and architects Sir Robert Rowand Anderson and John James Burnet also lived in this Scottish village.
