Founded in 1224 and dedicated to the Holy Trinity, Elgin Cathedral was the seat of the Bishopric of Moray. Built to a cruciform plan, the cathedral featured an octagonal chapter house. Despite a fire in 1270 and further burning by Alexander Stewart in 1390, parts of the 13th century building have survived along with fine stonework and sculpture of later date.
