Lights - SMC199
lighting was installed in St Magnus Cathedral during the restoration

in the St Rognvald Chapel, or presbytery, and is one of six
hanging in the arcade.
Light fittings from this period can also be found mounted
on the walls on the transepts. Pendants, such as those in
the presbytery, were also hung in the arcades of the choir
and nave but have since been replaced with modern spotlights.
Before the Cathedral was refurbished it was lit by large pendant
gas lamps. The holes for the pipes can still be seen in the
