When you enter St Machar's Cathedral you are at once impressed by the warmth of the building's atmosphere. There is peace, calm and a sense of history in these old stones. The Cathedral has been able to trace its priests and ministers from the foundation of the building and they are recorded just inside the building beside the south porch where you will also find really useful guides to the magnificent heraldic ceiling which traces the history of Europe and Scotland in the painted bosses. There are also some beautiful staned glass windows - Victorian and more modern by Strachan and Wilson. Several memorials grace the walls of the church and there is a lovely little chapel where you can spend a moment in prayer and quiet reflection
The surrounding churchyard especially at the east end of the Cathedral (the ruined part) is very interesting with some notable graves. The area immediately beside the Cathedral has some elegant old houses which are worth a look.
