Why are you reporting this puzzle?

The Church was constructed in the mid 15th century for the Carmelite order. It served as the parish church in the 16th and 17th centuries but then fell into disrepair. In 1890 it was restored and reopened by the Scottish Episcopal Church. It is now the only medieval Carmelite church still in use in the British Isles and is a Category A listed building.

The church was once attached to a monastery, which is long since gone. When we stayed in South Queensferry the apartment we rented for the fortnight was in what had once been the monastery grounds, and this church was right next door to us.

Thanks Tom. It's down by The Binks. The local museum also has a model of what the monastery was like and how the church looked originally :)
