|Situated on the High Street section of the Royal Mile, Tron Kirk was built in the 17th century by architect John Mylne. The name is derived from the salt tron (weighbridge) that once stood here.|
|Much of the church has been destroyed over the years but you can still get a good idea of how once looked.|
It hasn't been used as a church since 1952 and so the building is now home to the Old Town Information Centre, which contains information and exhibitions about the development of the district.
However, Tron Kirk truly comes into its own during the Hogmanay celebrations each New Year when partygoers traditionally gather on the steps.
