Elgin's town centre is a small pedestrian area, the High Street is split and runs along both sides with the middle area taken up by the triplets of the street. Some of the old architecture is interesting if you could view it without the shop signs such as 'The Tower' with its fine frontage. The middle section has a victorian water fountain and a war memorial. The classical building dominating the centre is Saint Giles Church built to replace the Cathedral in 1825 -8 - built on the site of the muckle kirk, it is the town's Parish Church, so different in style to any other churches in Scotland. Here in the High Street, you will find an assortment of shops, bars restaurants and cafes. A pleasant place to sit and watch the world go by.
