This is a very beautiful cathedral. It was so peaceful inside and the perfect place to stop and give thanks, light a candle and pray. It is beautiful inside and out. It is in a wonderful location too. We came upon it as we were walking a long the Ness. It is worth stopping and taking in for a bit.

We stumbled across this lovely gothic style cathedral while exploring and walking along the River Ness. We walked in at a quiet time of day and took photos of the beautiful architecture. Donations are appreciated to help keep up this old kirk. This was a nice retreat from the busyness of the city full of tourists.

Like so many people, we sometimes visit churches and cathedrals whilst on our travels. This one somehow seems to say Scottish, even if you didn't know beforehand. You can park outside by the river if lucky, and enjoy it's peaceful interior.

Although a relatively new building - for Scotland - it is a lovely stop on your walk along the River Ness. After a little tour, you can light a candle and say a prayer for someone special.

I visited with my wife, the Cathedral was not busy and there was not a service on so it was nice to walk around inside, light a candle, sit quietly and think for a bit, take some photos and then cruise to the gift shop / cafe for a drink and a bit of (delicious) cake before looking at the... More

this was a great spot to see and feel the history of the area. we did NOT go up the Rule Tower but felt the time spent looking at the historical markers and graves was worth it. take the time to stop in and see it.

Enjoyed our morning service (July 27th) which included their impressive choir which added a great deal to the hymns and responses. The Scottish Episcopal service is very similar to our Episcopal service in the United States and was very easy to follow and enjoy. The cathedral itself is magnificent and worth a visit.
