Location: The Chanonry, Aberdeen

Daily 10am-4pm


Located on The Chanonry, St Machar's Cathedral was first established in 1136 and showcases a wide range of religious features from throughout history. Although the building is now regarded as a high kirk, as no bishop has resided there since 1690, it took over 400 years to complete. Visitors can take in the beautiful, and original, Heraldic Ceiling and St Machar Bells, as well as see the First World War memorial to servicemen from Aberdeen. The Cathedral's most prominent feature however is its windows - 16 carefully decorated glass panes sit on each side of the venue, with each one being dedicated to former bishops and religious figures.
