Excerpt from The Edinburgh Magazine, or Literary Miscellany, Vol. 18: July, 1801
The length of the cathedral from eaftto w ell, is I 14. Feet, the breadth 24, and the length of the tranfept a bout 72 feet. The large call win dow has been a beautiful fpecimen of the Gothic yle, but its light and elegant workmanfhip is much injur ed. One thing remarkable in this building is, that the windows are ai molt all of different forms, and in different ityles of architee'ture. In the upper part of the tower is a cir cular window of peculiar confiruc tion, and fo well contrived, as to ad mit plenty of light, yet exclude the wind and rain, fo that it probably fe rved'the purpofe of a ventilator to the building, as well as a window.
