St Giles’ Cathedral

The historic St Giles’ Cathedral is an iconic building in Scotland’s historic capital. Founded in about 1124, St Giles’ has been a beacon of worship throughout Edinburgh’s rich and turbulent past. From a small modest church in the 12th century to a rigorous Renewal Programme in the 20th century, its famed crown spire, medieval carvings and beautiful Stained Glass Windows has made it one of the most beautiful churches in all of Edinburgh.
