St Machar's Cathedral - Old Aberdeen

Machar was a companion of St Columba on his journey to Iona. A 14th century legend tells how God told Machar in a dream to establish his church where a river bends into the shape of a Bishop's Crosier before flowing into the sea. The River Don bends in this way just below where the Cathedral now stands.
