Dornoch Cathedral

This photograph, taken by Andrew Taylor, shows Dornoch Cathedral, which is located on the high street of the sea-side town of Dornoch, Sutherland. The Cathedral has existed in some form since 1239, and was originally constructed under the supervision of Gilbert de Moravia, who, after his death on 1 April 1245, was canonised as a saint. Observing the Cathedral from its entrance onto the high street, the buildings exterior appears bulky and sturdy, with three wings emerging front, left and right from the central structure housing the steeple. The Cathedrals most recent 'claim to fame' is having been the location for the christening of the pop stalwart Madonna's child.
