Worth visiting if out walking along the Ness river. Some nice stained glass windows. It is a Scottish Episcopal Church not a Church of Scotland Church which was slightly surprising.

Worth a stop at this beautiful church! Stop and read the welcome as you walk through the door. It is worth the payment for the brochure. It explains exactly what you are looking at throughout the church.

St Andrews is a lovely small Cathedral set in a beautiful location by the river Ness. The information leaflets were very interesting and the staff were very welcoming. Definitely worth popping in if you're passing.

Once inside there is a picture on the bottom right wall of the ''architects impression'' of what the Cathedral, would look like. This picture / drawing shows two beautiful steeples on top of...

Built in red stones; the columns in the nave are in granite. The St. Andrews Cathedral was the 1st to be completed in UK after the Reform, they said. You can find it in the city, close to the River Ness banks

Right in the center of the town, building is decorated with beautiful sculptures, and daily service still takes place.

If you go to Inverness, take a change for a walk along the river and take a look at the Cathedral. It's ok.

The location is beautiful with the river flowing on one side and the view of the castle not far away .Outside is not too bad but inside is much nicer ,it is worth a visit if you are around ,maybe not a detour .
