Elgin Cathedral

Elgin cathedral dates from around 1224 and was the principal church of the bishops of Moray. It fell into ruin from the Reformation when its roof was removed and gradually the building disintegrated.

Despite its ruinous state its grandeur and ambition as a building is evident featuring some fine examples of medieval carving.
