View Full Version : Good organs in Scotland
Does anyone know of any good organs that are worth going to hear/play in Scotland?
I have access to the Hradetzsky in St Andrews university and I'm aware that Paisley Abbey and St Giles Cathedral are supposed to have good instruments. Does anyone know of any other?

The largest organ in Scotland is the 4-manual Rushworth & Dreaper at the Church of the Holy Rude, Stirling. It's big, romantic and quite a fine sound.
Dunblane Cathedral is good....new neo-classic organ...Flentrop?
Easily the best cathedral style of instrument is the Willis/Harrison at St.Mary's Episcopal Cathedral, Edinburgh.
There's a very fine Lewis in the Kelvingrove Arts gallery/hall...Glasgow.....definitely a must hear instrument!
There's a cracking Fr.Willis at St.Machar's Cathedral, Aberdeen.....3 manual with superb reeds.
I'm sure there are many others, and I'll have a dig around when I get a few moments.
Thanks very much. I'm not sure what sort of chance I'd have to actually play these instruments but I might get to hear them at some point.
