Tron Kirk

Notable Building in Old Town

Built in 1637 and taking its name from the tron (public weighbridge) that once stood on the site, this church is famous for its magnificent oak hammer-beam roof, which rivals that in the Great Hall at Edinburgh Castle. There are long-term plans to transform it into a visitor centre celebrating Scotland's Unesco World Heritage sites, but meanwhile it houses a colourful flea market complete with pizza stall and occasional live entertainment.
