CANONGATE KIRKYARD

The churchyard, resting place to many prominent parishioners, shows most notably, a bronze medallion against the wall facing the nave of the church.

This and the name Clarissa are the only identification of the famous mistress to Robert Burns.

Incorportated into a monument to the Scottish Economist Adam Smith is a small, scuplted portrait.

Scottish Poet, Robert Fergusson (1751-74), who had a huge influence on Burns, occupies a plot in front of the wall.

When Burns visted the grave in 1780, finding it in disarray, he commissioned the present headstone and composed the fond tribute.
