Historic Buildings & Homes

Elgin, Moray, IV30 5QG

    The residence of the bishops of Moray from the 14th century to 1686.

    For nearly 500 years, the bishops of Moray relaxe in this majestic building a short distance from their cathedral at Elgin. It even had its own bowling green and, according to one account, a tennis court.

    Today, you can climb David’s Tower, where bishops once entertained kings and queens.
