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.

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
