A church with centuries of heritage - the church was established in 1483 - but its roots can be traced back 1300 years ago with the coming to Scotland of St Triduana. Leith being a busy Templar port, the Order of the Knights Templar and the Order of the Knights of St John are believed to have built a hospice here. The parish halls operate as a venue during the Fringe.
