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.

I had a good experience here attending two Easter services. More like a big parish church so not big on pomp which some cathedrals are.

This is a building from the 1860ies, but its beautiful and has lots of atmosphere. We heard a choir concert and were delighted.

We had a short visit to the church en route to our lunch venue, during a family break from Glasgow. Beautiful church, good information about the church history offered, A nice history of the bell tower available. Beautiful architecture, stained glass windows, lovely paintings and picturesque setting adjacent to the River Ness. We met a lovely priest from Nova Scotia... More

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
