Glasgow Cathedral

Cathedral Square
Central Scotland
G4 0QZ

Set in the heart of Scotland's largest city is Glasgow Cathedral, one of Medieval Scotland's most magnificent buildings.

It is built on the site where St Kentigern, or Mungo, the first bishop within the ancient British kingdom of Strathclyde, was thought to have been buried in AD 612.

The present cathedral was built during the 13th century to 15th century and is the only medieval cathedral on the Scottish mainland to have survived the 1560 Reformation virtually complete.

Its wealth of architectural treasures include the elaborately vaulted crypt with its collection of carved stones, the early 15th century stone screen and the Blackadder Aisle.

This property is managed by Historic Scotland.
