St Machar’s Cathedral (or, more formally, the Cathedral Church of St Machar) is a Church of Scotland church in Aberdeen, Scotland. It is located to the north of the city centre, in the former burgh of Old Aberdeen. Technically, St Machar’s is no longer a cathedral but rather a high kirk, as it has not been the seat of a bishop since 1690.
The beautiful St. Machar’s Catherdal is also known as Aberdeen Cathedral. The story is that the left quarter of Sir William Wallace is buried in the walls of the cathedral. After the execution of William Wallace in 1305, his body was cut up and sent to different corners of the country to warn other dissenters.
