St Giles’ Cathedral, Edinburgh.
V1 shows part of the west front of St Giles' Cathedral, more properly termed the High Kirk of Edinburgh. The church has been one of Edinburgh's religious focal points for approximately 900 years. The present church dates from the late 14th century, though it was extensively restored in the 19th century. On the left hand side, in front of the cathedral, is part of the statue base to the 5th Duke of Buccleuch.
V2 & V3 show some selected detail on the outside of the cathedral, including a gargoyle (V3).
