I was staying at Crombie halls for a week. So everyday, I had the opportunity to walk past this gargantuan piece of beauty. It's so interesting to just observe every inch of detail. Amazing architecture that you don't see in a lot of places outside of the UK. You have to take a camera as this place is very photogenic.

This is a very important historic church in the University of Aberdeen. It is almost overwhelming regarding its history and offers many photographic oportunities.

It's a beautiful building and very well conserved! One of the best in Aberdeen in my opinion! Nothing much else to do unless admire it! It's a bit far from town, but it's nice to visit.

Having been married in a previous life in the chapel over 30 years ago i was surprised to find how little of the place i actually remembered ! Delightful building located in heart of aberdeen with its cobbled and narrow courtyards and streets leading o chapel. Beautiful architecture with gothic tones. On a dry sunny day absolutely wonderful for photographs.... More

Very lucky to participate in the University and OTC/Air Squadron parade and service for Remembrance day. Nostalgic as i was in uniform in 1967-69, so maybe a little "one-eyed" Lovely windows.

This place is one that locals tend to underappreciate. The chap is a model of Gothic beauty. The Christmas carol service is beautiful.
