This is a very nice Cathedral. the congregation appear to be active in their work for God. The usual struggle to maintain such a large and ageing building is evident so leave a feel pounds.

This lovely, Victorian cathedral is just a short, pleasant walk across the river from the shopping area. Take the time to visit and enjoy its stained glass, stone & wooden carvings and peace. Don't forget to look up at it's patterned wooden ceiling. Guide book for sale - £4, plus postcards for 30p - all into honesty box. There's a... More

Looking across the river the Cathedral is a very attractive building. Plenty of photos to be had from all angles this cathedral rates as on of the better ones in Scotland. It is not overboard in design and construction like a lot in Europe and most certainly worth the visit when in Inverness.

The cathedral was highlighted on a walking tour of Inverness brochure so we parked next door, fed the parking machine and in we went. There happened to be a musical program going on so we sat in one of the pews and enjoyed the piano playing and singing by a male that had the voice of a soprano. Really amazing... More

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.
