    Almost 1,000 years of history

Thought to be the original location of the relics of St Andrew, the Chapel of St Mary on the Rock (late 12th/early 13th Century) sits on the site of even older religious buildings.

Though ruined soon after the Scottish Reformation, the Chapel’s foundations can still be seen just outside the Cathedral walls and can be visited at all times. There are also tremendous views out to sea to be enjoyed from this elevated position.
