  St. Giles Cathedral
by littlesam1

St. Giles Cathedral has a lot of history. Its dates back to the 15th century. It is here that John Knox brought the Protestant Reformation to Scotland. It is also known as the High Kirk of Edinburgh and is often called the mother church of world presbyterianism. We took some time to explore the inside of this beautiful church. We visited the historic Thistle Chapel and took some time to admire the art work through out the Cathedral.
