Elgin Cathedral photos

I visited the town of Elgin in north east Scotland one evening during my Summer 2010 Scotland Blog Tour.  Elgin Cathedral is an example of Scottish medieval architecture, dating from the 13th century.  It was known as the “Lantern of the North” as it was such a landmark in the surrounding flat terrain.  I didn’t pay to go in Elgin Cathedral, as I thought I could see it quite well from the perimeter fence. I’m already a member of the National Trust for Scotland but Elgin Cathedral is managed by Historic Scotland. I just wish the two organisations would merge, so I could have pay for one membership to get into all Scotland’s historic buildings.

If you visit Elgin Cathedral between May to September do walk across to the Biblical Gardens.
