St Giles' Cathedral (High Kirk of Edinburgh) is the principal place of worship of the Church of Scotland in Edinburgh. Its distinctive crown steeple is a prominent feature of the city skyline, at about a third of the way down the Royal Mile. The church has been one of Edinburgh's religious focal points for approximately 900 years. The present church dates from the late 1300s and was extensively restored in the 1800s. Some regard it as the "Mother Church of Presbyterianism." The cathedral is dedicated to Saint Giles, a very popular saint in the Middle Ages and the patron saint of Edinburgh (also of cripples and lepers). Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland, in Lothian on the Firth of Forth's southern shore, Scotland, United Kingdom, Europe.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
