New College Edinburgh



This magnificent William Playfair buidling on Castle Mound high above Waverly Station in Edinburgh was commissioned in 1845 by Thomas Chalmers for the Free Church of Scotland's new seminary.



Inside the courtyard of the College is this broze statue of John Knox in his characteristic pose: proclaiming the doctrines of sovereign grace from the Scriptures.
