  Toll Booth Kirk - The Hub
by littlesam1

Walking up the Royal Mile towards the Edinburgh Castle I came across the imposing Toll Booth Kirk. The church has the tallest spire in Edinburgh and is truely beautiful. The church was built in 1845. It is know by locals and some guide books as The Hub. Today it is also the permanent home to the annual Edinburgh Festival.
