Enjoy some peace among the magnificent ruins of this sacred place, which dates back 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.
Please note: The towers at Elgin Cathedral are currently closed to allow the install of a new permanent exhibition. They will reopen on 25 March 2016.
