The cathedral is located close to the centre of Inverness and just across the road from the River Ness. A lovely cathedral with some beautiful stained glass windows and an Irish marble pulpit, but a fairly young Cathedral compared to some found in the U.K and Europe as it was established in 1869. Would be a lovely place to attend... More

Went to a candle lit carol concert here at the end of last year. Boy, what an experience ! Beautiful building, with so much to admire. Combined with the music, it was a very moving experience.

Unusual to find a relatively modern building, Great Russian icons - what a lovely surprise they were. There was a small service in progress when we arrived but we were made very welcome.

When I visited St. Andrews Cathedral in Inverness it was gloriously warm & yet absolutely empty. The radiators were belching out a warm glow & provided a little respite from a wintery Scottish February afternoon. It has brilliant frontage & the stone detail is still in place but the architectural detail of some of the wood carvings in the choir... More

The church is within walking distance from Inverness city center and doors are open for free entry, locals and visitors alike. Everywhere you look there are beautiful details and carvings in wood and stone, all in very good shape. Well worth the visit to admire these old time details.

We attended the evening service for the Epiphany. The parishioners were welcoming; the service was simple and sincere. This is a holy space and provided the space to sit quietly and just enjoy time with the Lord.

I thought this a lovely building, with beautiful stained glass windows. AND it has the loveliest font I've ever seen - a kneeling angel, holding a scallop shell. Well worth going to see

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