This is so tranquil. Love the lawn stretching down the the river. I did think it was funny that it said - don't walk on the grass yet the benches were on the grass! The inside of the church is plain but non the less a lovely place to be.

A gem in terms of setting. The cathedral is largely in ruins except for two parts in full use. It is impressive enough but it is the park and riverside setting which sets it apart.

A lot of work is being carried out at the Cathedral and can be viewed easily by visitors. The area surrounding the building is beautiful too, being set on the banks of the River Tay. Seats are provided on the grassed areas and it is a nice place to just sit and enjoy your surroundings.

Had a personal guided tour of teh cathedral with explanations of the history. Don't forget to go behind the altar to see the tomb/sarcophagus of the Wolf of Badenoch. The older parts are unused (in the sense of not having services conducted) such as the Bell Tower. Lots of interesting carvings, remains and monuments to see. Well worth a visit... More

This is a beautiful building that we visited through The Jamie and Claire tour, which I would not recommend booking through as they are very unprofessional and awful. There is some nice landscape surrounding the building and apparently there are a few of very old trees on location as well. They are beautiful and massive. Inside the building there is... More

Most of the cathedral is in ruins, but there's rennovation work taking place. There's a small part of the building which has been restored and it is full of the history of the church and the Atholl Family involvement. Very interesting

A visit to Dunkeld Cathedral is a must when visiting the area. It's a lovely building , at the moment the east wing is being renovated. Set in beautiful grounds, with the River Tay running alongside it is a peaceful haven to wander round or to sit and soak in the surroundings. The church itself has lovely stained glass windows...
