Malcolm and Margaret Window
In the South Transept is the Malcolm and Margaret Window. Arresting in size and imagery this magnificent window has, as its principal subject, the marriage of King Malcolm III (Canmore) to Margaret, later Saint Margaret of Scotland. This is presented in the lower section of the window.
In the upper section is a representation of Queen Margaret instructing her children to give alms to the poor and needy, while her ladies are seen embroidering an altar cloth and working on a loom.
