History

The Canongate is part of Edinburgh's Royal Mile.

../1_MAP/1_map_edinburgh_1460.htm#map

 The Royal Mile leads from Holyrood Palace, beside Holyrood Abbey (established by King David I in 1128 and dedicated to the Holy Rood)

Postcard published by WH, Berlin, with many small cut-out windows and moon, to be held up to the light   -  Holyrood Palace and Arthur's Seat

up the ridge to Edinburgh castle.

Postcard from the P&WM Vello Series  -  Edinburgh Castle Esplanade

The Canongate (named after the Canon's 'Gait' or 'Walk') was originally a separate borough from Edinburgh, though the two were only a mile apart.  The boundary between the two boroughs was half way up the Royal Mile at the Netherbow.
