St Vincent's Chapel

St Vincent’s, a Scottish Episcopal (Anglican Communion) church, is in Edinburgh’s Northern New Town on its border with Stockbridge. A Gothic gem, St Vincent’s was built by the brothers John, William and James Hay of Liverpool and opened in 1857. The interior is adorned with modern heraldry from the time when it was also Hereditary Commandery of Lochore of the Military and Hospitaller Order of St Lazarus (1967–1996).
