The Story

ELGIN is a picturesque historic Scottish town and former cathedral city in Moray, Scotland.

For many centuries Elgin was a popular residence for the early Scottish monarchs including David I, William I, Alexander II and Alexander III.

The original town of Elgin was first documented in the Chartulary of Moray in 1190 and was made a Royal Burgh in the 12th century by King David I.

The first stone of Elgin cathedral was ceremoniously laid in July 1224, and the remaining ruins are a spectacular reminder of its former glory. The Chartulary itself referred to the Cathedral as "Mirror of the country and the glory of the kingdom".

The River Lossie is central to Elgin’s modern-day town. Permo-Triassic rocks, rarely found in Scotland, are common around Elgin. These are composed of Aeolian sandstone formed when this area was subjected to desert conditions.
