Always a pleasure to visit St Giles Cathedral, and as usual we headed straight for the lavish Thistle Chapel. Not for the first time I wondered how the fiery John Knox (now ignominiously buried outside under carpark lot no.23) would view this ostentatiousness? The cathedral tower pinnacle itself is an integral part of the Old Town skyline, and may have been modelled on the long-destroyed spire of St Mary-le-Bow in London.

Walked right by this trigpoint on our way down the mile from Edinburgh Castle. I've never seen a steeple so extravagant; it's truly unique.

Log #249. I think "opulent" is the best way to describe this massive cathedral. [ExP-187/MiP-9/Rev-2/BM-14/IS-29/Other-8]

Most (in)famous as the place where Jenny Geddes chucked her stool at the minister, inadvertently starting the Civil Wars.
