About Elgin Cathedral

Elgin Cathedral, one of Scotland’s most ambitious and beautiful medieval buildings, was the principal church of the bishops of Moray. The cathedral has a vast heritage dating back to 1224 and is central to to the history of the region, carrying evidence of said history throughout. Highlights include the wonderful 13th-century west front – one of the finest architectural sights in Scotland - and the stone bishop – the ‘larger-than-life’ statue in the nave, which looks for all the world like a giant chess piece, once standing in the crossing tower.
