St Giles' Church

Often referred to as
St Giles Cathedral,

but its proper title is 'The High Kirk of Edinburgh'.
The Church of Scotland does not have Cathedrals

Please also see 'update' below.

Update

Cathedral?

Mike, USA, posted a message in the EdinPhoto guestbook on July 11, 2013, commenting that the St Giles' web site refers to St Giles' Cathedral.  The address of the web site is stgilescathedral.org.uk.

Agreed, Mike.  It does appear that St Giles' is officially now being referred to as St Giles' Cathedral.

I also have a copy of the official guide to St Giles' which is titled St Giles' Cathedral, Edinburgh.

So perhaps, I might start referring to it on the EdinPhoto web site as St Giles Cathedral.

High Church?

The Wikipedia page for St Giles' is titled "St Giles' Cathedral" but the page begins:

"St Giles' Cathedral, more properly termed the High Church of Edinburgh, ..."

The next paragraph on the Wikipedia page adds:

"St Giles' has only been a cathedral in its formal sense (i.e. the seat of a bishop) for two periods ... 1635-38 and 1661-89".
