Elgin Cathedral

Elgin cathedral

On our tour of Scotland, the Hubs wanted to go to Elgin on our way west so that he could check out a specific liquor store and we had heard good things about Johnstons food hall for lunch. As we were making our way through town, we just happened to drive by this ruin which turned out to be Elgin Cathedral.

In case you didn’t know, I have an endless thirst for European history. I love everything old and built in the 13th century, it’s astounding the craftsmanship and the detailing of this structure. It’s found in the center of town, just in right there off a main road, something most New Yorkers would find a little odd. As we were touring around, it was amazing to just be walking or driving down a street and passing something hundreds of years ago. Really walking through history.
