While walking on the River Ness, it's worth a stop to the (new) cathedral. Not an ancient foundation, but a newer Anglican cathedral, this is a beautiful building with a quiet, friendly atmosphere and a tea shop that's open behind the building in the summer. What passes for summer in Inverness may leave you wanting hot tea!

This cathedral is pretty, but it is very small and lacks the impact of more grandiose cathedrals. It also lacks any interesting artifacts or historical information. You can see everything it has to offer in under 15 mins.

This old ruins were awesome. You are free to meander on the grounds for free (at least we were, but it was also cold and rainy, so not sure if that is normal.) There was a museum inside, underground. It was a beautiful place. We'd love to go back for sure.

I loved the architure and the peasfulness of the place itself. I can see why it has been around for so long. It was amazing.

If you like churches and cathedrals, you'll like to visit St. Andrew's. The architectural details of the outer facade, as well as inside, are impressive.

A really beautiful Cathedral. Lovely to look at architecture and just to sit in a pew is very relaxing and gives you time to reflect on life.

We visited St Andrews Cathedral on a drizzly afternoon. The inside, whilst small for a Cathedral, was ful of aged wood and beautiful stained glass windows. The Angel That has pride of place at the front of the church has a surreal feeling About her. Plenty of leaflets describing the Cathedral available and freshly cut flowers. You can shave .... More

A friend of a friend who is passionate about the history of Inverness gave my group a guided tour of the town which included the cathedral. Great story about the angel statue to the right of the entry and about the horse and wheel carvings either side of one of the windows on the exterior. Beautiful stained glass windows

St. Andrews isn't as grand as other cathedrals, but it is quite pretty inside and seems more like a large parish church. The detailed woodwork is lovely as are the stained glass windows.
