St Andrews Cathedral (HES)

By far the largest cathedral in the land, St Andrews was the headquarters of the church in medieval Scotland.

The magnificent medieval ruins stand on a site used for Christian worship since the 8th century, when the relics of St Andrew were reputedly brought here. The cathedral dominated the religious establishment until the Protestant Reformation in 1560. Climb St. Rule's Tower for a glorious view over the streets and sands of St Andrews.An important collection of early Christian stone carvings is displayed in the museum.
