St Giles' Angels



Two angels from Edinburgh's High Kirk: the marble one holds the font at the entrance to the church while the wooden piping angel is hidden amongst dozens of others in the ornately carved Thistle Chapel.

The Chapel's well worth a visit; around its walls are ranks of angels playing every musical instrument possible while the arms of the seats are decorated with a range of animals which would make any zookeeper jealous.
