St. Machar’s Cathedral Church
There has been a church on the site of St. Machar’s Cathedral since the sixth century, when St. Machar, a follower of St. Columba started preaching at the spot. The present building mostly dates from the medieval period, with the oldest parts dating from the 12th century. A peek inside is rewarded with the stunning interior, especially the beautiful wooden heraldic ceiling.
