Cathedral Church of St Columba, Argyll and Bute



The Cathedral Church of St Columba is in Oban on the shores of the bay.

It was originally built out of corrugated iron as a temporary solution but actually stood for over fifty years like this until the new building was erected in 1932. In 1959 the great bells were blessed which marked the completion of the cathedral.

Inside, you can see the Archangels immortalised in stained glass looking out across the Firth of Lorne to Iona and the Atlantic.

The Cathedral is in the neo-Gothic style and pink and blue granite are the materials used throughout making the Cathedral a tangible symbol of the sturdiness of the tradition of the faith of the people of the West Highlands and Islands of Scotland.
