  • A great looking church sitting at the entrance to Seaton Park. Walking around the courtyard is peaceful and a Pixie stone can be seen round the back.
  • A peaceful, gorgeous, and historic church. Definitely, definitely worth a visit.
  • Absolutely gorgeous. A lovely place when the Aberdeen University ensembles put on concerts. Parking can be difficult.
  • Beautiful building! It's open weekdays, and there's a gift shop and information about the art inside.
  • Very old and powerful building with interesting history. Quite scary at night as it is surronded by a graveyard.
