About this church
Above the porch is a plaque to Thomas Moodie, who left money in his will to build this conundrum.
It was opened in 1691, and its layout is unique for its time.
Canongage is the parish church for the Palace of Holyrood House, the home of the Queen in Scotland, which explains the Royal pew at the front of the church and the military colours hanging over the nave.
The white interior, with much pale blue painted woodwork including pews, give a startling, elegant effect.
