Attractions Near Canonmills

The small church in front of Canon Court was once a school (before being enlarged) which was the first school attended by Robert Louis Stevenson in about 1852. There is a small plaque to this effect on the front wall of the building.

According to historical records, Canonmills is an area once owned by the canons of the Abbey of Holyrood where mills once stood, used in the processing of grain on behalf of the canons of the Abbey, who imposed a canon law that all baxters (bakers) must bring their grain to this site. (There is a plaque on the wall of the garage opposite with some details of the name ‘baxtersland’, also associated with this area).

Close by to Canon Court is the Royal Botanical Gardens of Edinburgh, which is a few minutes walk to the right of our entrance. The Water of Leith has a waterside walk to the burgh of Leith in one direction, and to the adjoining historic area of Stockbridge the other way. To walk to Princes Street or to explore the historic New Town, we recommend guests cross Canonmills, and walk up the hill towards the Centre of the City, which takes around 15 minutes.
