From Our Editors

St Giles’ Cathedral, also known as the High Kirk of Edinburgh, is the city’s principal place of worship for the Church of Scotland. The magnificent Gothic building dates back to the 12th Century, and has served Scottish Christians for about 900 years. After a fire damaged significant parts of the building in in 1385, much of the cathedral was rebuilt; most of the grand interior dates back to this period. The late-Medieval Gothic architectural style of extremely ornate and intricate masonry can be seen throughout the inside of St Giles’, making for an impressive sight for first time visitors.

Really interesting tour of the roof with a well-informed guide who was more than willing and able to answer all questions without rushing us. Steep spiral staircase - but you'd expect that! Been to St Giles on many occasions, and love the stained glass wondows in particular, but this added another dimension. Literally!

Guide was extremely knowledgeable, very friendly, and answered all our questions. Can only take 4 people at a time so lots of individual attention. Great to see Edinburgh from a different view point.

To climb the stairs make sure you have on suitable shoes if you do the rooftop tour. The Cathedral itself is worth a visit alone.
