Really nice to see the conservation work underway on the historic building. The place is well worth a visit and a pleasure to walk round.

Dropped in to say hello to the 'Wolf of Badenoch' who is buried there. He was a bit of a lad in his day.

Situated on the banks of the River Tay the Cathedral is both ruin and working church. The 15th Century Nave and Tower are under the care of Historic Scotland, whilst the Former Choir serves as the local Church. Access to site is free however donations can be made in collection boxes inside the chapel.

We attended a funeral of a dear friend. There were snow showers that morning so the setting was idillic next to the Tey. Would have loved to spend more time there, it certainly helped being in such a beautiful place to say our fond farewells.

Very beautiful historical cathedral. Well kept grounds and situated with beautiful views. Visitor book available to sign, and prayer book available for providing requests for visitors and parishioners to offer thoughts and prayers for those mentioned. Great comfort.

If you are in Dunkeld, please visit. The grounds alone are worth it. The river flows fast but beautifully. Our daughter was married in the Cathedral ....spectacular, natural scenery made it a wonderful memory.
