“Beatiful.”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

There's a place to visit each time you're in Aberdeen... You can "taste" the flavour of history there. Nice relaxing corners and a very beautiful palace to visit.

“Music at 6”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

What a combination- a marvellous church, and 2 talented musicians. Raemond Jappy and Maureen Rutherford on violin and piano respectively gave wonderful performances in the Sunday service" Music at 6". The acoustics and ambiance in this church made this a very moving evening.

St Machars is well worth a visit. Dont miss the ambiance and loveliness of the surrounding area of Old Aberdeen,. With the surrounding park, and cobbled streets, St MAchars is the jewel in Aberdeens crown.

Reviewed September 25, 2013

Nice churchyard and church - lovely corner/neighbourhood of Aberdeen. People volunteering in church were nice without being overbearing.

“A serene place”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

A short stroll from King's College the Cathedral has an interesting graveyard as the rave stones are very close together and would be interesting to sketch. The inside is serene and the ceiling superb.

“Wedding”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Absolutely gorgeous Cathedral soaked in History. Beautiful stained glass windows and granite peaks on the outside of building. Check the history before going but make sure you go see this as its a must when in aberdeen
