We happened to walk by the cathedral on our way to the river and stopped in. Hadn't planned to but glad we did. It's small compared to some of the other cathedrals we'd seen on our U.K. trip but beautiful nonetheless. It is easily accessible to walkers from all parts of the city and is in a lovely location next... More

We made on trip to the Cathedral and enjoyed the serenity. The atmosphere inside was peaceful and the building is well maintained, inside and outside. Definitely worth a visit.

Very pretty cathedral in the city centre, just opposite Inverness Castle on the other side of the River Ness. Parking is easy at the back of the Cathedral, with pay-and-display. The Cathedral itself has a nice interior, with a wooden ceiling and a great stained-glass window above the main door. Entrance is free but a donation is welcome and merited.

Do yourself a favor and stop in when your near St. Andrews Cathedral! Its a gorgeously well kept famous Cathedral in Inverness. Its right off the River Ness, so if you're out on a walk, stop in and admire the ancient carving and statues. Take the time to soak it all in, say a prayer, and maybe catch a Mass!... More

Popped by and enjoyed this cathedral. In particular the ceiling of wood I found interesting, but it also holds a lot of other interesting items including the various windows and the sculptured font in the right corner - sculptured by the famous Dane Thorvaldsen. Take 15 minutes for a visit and enjoy.

Inverness was our return to a populated area after being in the Outer Hebrides for several days. It is a largish town with a village feel. The cathedral is a very worthy stop for any traveler and was one of our highlights in the city.
