Quintessential Bed and Breakfasts
St Mary’s Cathedral

St Mary’s Cathedral, Edinburgh, is the largest ecclesiastical building in Scotland and boasts three spires which can be seen dominating the skyline from all around.

Located on Palmerston Place in the West End, St Mary’s Cathedral was consecrated in 1879 and was built by the great Victorian Gothic architect Sir Gilbert Scott, alongside work by his son John and Sir Robert Lorimer.

See the Paolozzi Window designed by the late Sir Eduardo Paolozzi on the theme of Ascension, Alfred Borthwick’s powerful painting, The Presence, which was painted in St Mary’s in 1910 and hangs in the north aisle, and one of the finest organs in Scotland designed by ‘Father’ Willis in 1879.
