Magdalen Chapel

Door open days

Edinburgh

Built in 1541 as the last Roman Catholic chapel built in Edinburgh before the Reformation, it contains the only pre-Reformation stained glass in Scotland still in its original location. The chapel may have hosted the first General Assembly of the Church of Scotland in 1560. It also features a remarkable 17th century interior including inscribed wooden panels and a mortuary table associated with the Covenanters. It was the meeting place for the charitable activities of the Hammermen and Incorporate Trades for several centuries.
