St. Andrews Cathedral (St. Andrews)

St. Andrews Cathedral is an ancient cathedral in Scotland, situated in the historic city of St. Andrews.

The Greek monk, St. Regulus, is said to have brought the relics of St. Andrew himself here in the 4th century, but this is more likely to have been in the 8th century.

The cathedral was founded in 1160, but not consecrated until 1318, in the presence of Robert Bruce. It was the largest in Scotland.

It was destroyed in the 16th century, during the Reformation, and is now a picturesque ruin.
