Living History at Elgin Cathedral

Selected dates until Friday 13 August 2021

Elgin Cathedral

We are delighted to welcome you to a summer full of Living History at the mighty Elgin Cathedral.

Join our medieval blacksmith and hear about the essential role of the smith in cathedral life and meet Alexander Stewart the Wolf of Badenoch and hear about the search for his wife and what lead to the burning of Elgin.

You can even meet John Shanks, Elgin shoemaker and the first amateur custodian of the cathedral.

Learn about the history of the cathedral and the part John and other historical characters played in trying to protect the site.
