Mid Common Close

 
 

MID COMMON CLOSE

At one time this close allowed access to the High School of the Canongate, and was known as Veitch's Close until the early nineteenth century after John Veitch, a burgess who built a tenement here.

The Moorish effigy affixed above the entrance to Mid Common Close has given rise to many urban legends, most prominently featuring the Moroccan adventures of Andrew Gray, a youngest son of a local noble family.
