Nice Cathedral on the banks of the river Ness, old building, nicely shaped! We didn't go in, because it was mass time.

Cathedral is on the river bank and is well worth the slight detour. Call in have a walk arround, well worth a look.

It was smaller than some of the other cathedrals we visited, but it was beautiful and serene. I liked that it wasn't crowded and the quiet that comes with that.

Worth stopping in if it is convenient, but not really worth the trip just to see it. There is a picture in the rear of the church showing one of the earlier architect's proposals. Most of the church was built as it appears in the picture except the steeples. They must be half of the proposed height.

I always enjoy the calmness that comes over me when I enter a place of worship and this place was no exception. The architecture of the building is lovely and they are endeavouring to keep it in good order. I have enjoyed the amount of old buildings whilst touring Scotland and this was right up there.

We were visiting all around Scotland and this Cathedral is just magnificent. One of many that must be seen when you travel around.

One can attend one of the daily services that take place in the cathedral or else take a tour around the building. Has a very interesting history and very beautiful architecture.

This is a very nice Cathedral. the congregation appear to be active in their work for God. The usual struggle to maintain such a large and ageing building is evident so leave a feel pounds.

This lovely, Victorian cathedral is just a short, pleasant walk across the river from the shopping area. Take the time to visit and enjoy its stained glass, stone & wooden carvings and peace. Don't forget to look up at it's patterned wooden ceiling. Guide book for sale - £4, plus postcards for 30p - all into honesty box. There's a... More
