Elgin Cathedral (HES)

The superb remains of a majestic and beautiful 13th century cathedral, almost destroyed in 1390 by Alexander Stewart.

Enjoy some peace among the magnificent ruins of this sacred place, which dates to the 1200s. Admire the glorious west front, the sumptuous decorations and the atmospheric chapter house. There are spectacular views from the towers. An unruly nobleman burned the cathedral in 1390, and during the ferment leading to the Protestant Reformation of 1560 it was the scene of a violent attack.
