Scotland’s largest medieval church, the majesty of St Andrews Cathedral can’t be understated. Overlooking the coastline, it was one a seat for the leading bishops and archbishops of the country. The ruins of the cathedral – designated a scheduled monument in 1999 – now span 199m of land.
It is said that the relics of St Andrew were brought to this site in the 700s. The cathedral is in ruins now but after a stroll around the grounds, a view from the top of St Rule’s Tower and a trip around the museum you will know the importance that this grand medieval church had to the people of Scotland. The museum holds medieval relics and sculptures found on the site. The view from the tower is also a great photo opportunity especially on a lovely bright day.
