Covenant Close


In Edinburgh's Royal Mile, just off the High Street, striking south, is a lane known as Covenant Close. This was named from the fact that one of the copies of the National Covenant was teken here from Greyfriars Kirkyard to collect signatures from other residents in the city. The copy was on display in one of the houses in the lane, and signatures were gathered on it.
