Elgin Cathedral - Historic Scotland

Guided tours icon Shop icon Hearing disability facilities icon Wheelchair access icon

The superb ruin of what many think was Scotland’s most beautiful cathedral. Much of the work is in a rich late 13th-century style, much modified after the burning of the church by the Wolf of Badenoch in 1390. The octagonal chapter house is the finest in Scotland. Also included within the area surrounding the Cathedral are the Bishop’s House, the Pans Port and parts of the Cathedral precinct wall. Pictish cross-slab.
