Located in Dunkeld 15 miles north of Perth A very nice Cathedral, as Cathedrals go, not big. It has a small museum of interest and information about who built the Cathedral. nice architecture and clean and tidy. The Cathedral, the bridge and the village all have one man in common -visit and find out who it is - Outside Scotland... More

Our trip to Dunkeld was not our first and hopefully not our last. The cathedral (far too grand a title for this welcoming space) lies nestled on the river bank with the hills overlooking and the woods an ever present addition.

A quaint village plus the Dunkeld ell an original indicator of length. The church an amalgam of old and older sitting in beautiful grounds adjacent to the river and a Telford designed arched bridge - A neat place to visit

We paid a short visit to the Cathedral and it is a beautiful building, half of it is still currently used and the other half is currently being conserved by Historic Scotland. I think it is in the most perfect setting by the river with a backdrop of large trees. Really peaceful place.

Lovely small cathedral that incorporates a small museum which gives you some interesting history. The cathedral is beautifully kept & is a very peaceful place. The stain glass windows are beautiful. Worth a visit.

Fabulous cathedral, both the ruin and the renovated half, set in fabulous grounds by the River Tay. I have attended both a church service and an evening concert here. The acoustics are fabulous and it has an abundance of historic charm.

A mixture between ruins and working! Small and tranquil with a real sense of history. It was not touristy in any sense and flet like a house of prayer

This place is a gem. Ancient artifacts, great stories if you have a good guide, beautiful architecture. Ask about the hidden vaults recently found under the floor.

The Cathedral is partly in ruins but the front section is still in use. Beautiful setting by the river and there is a lovely walk along the banks.
