Greyfriar’s Bobby

Hear the story of the devoted Skye Terrier who belonged to a 19th century policeman. So fond of his master that after his death the little dog kept vigil over his grave for 14 years until his own death.

Beloved at the time by local children, innkeepers and the Lord Provost, this story has captured the hearts of millions around the world and has been made into film twice; once, famously, by Walt Disney in the 1960’s and more recently in 2005.

Today he lies in the Greyfriars Kirkyard, as close to his master as religious protocol allowed at the time – the kirkyard itself the scene of dramatic events in Scotland’s turbulent history.
