Greyfriars

Ceremony

This photo was taken on January 14, 2011, when a ceremony was arranged by the One o' Clock Gun & Time Ball Association to lay a wreath at Greyfriars' Bobby's gravestone in front of Greyfriars' Church.

Greyfriars' Bobby Story

Greyfriars' Bobby  was a Skye terrier that sat at his master's grave  daily for fourteen years, from his master's death in 1858.  He used to leave the grave only for food, recognising the one o'clock gun his signal to go for his lunch.

The one o' clock gun marks its 150th anniversary in 2011.  It has been fired from Edinburgh Castle to indicate the time to shipping in the Firth of Forth and others.   The gun is fired daily, except on Sundays, Good Friday and Christmas Day.
