Got held-up in Cathedral on a rainy day. This had given a chance to go thru each and everything on Cathedral. So i can say - it is Old and Nicely preserved Cathedral.

A very beautiful stop on the way from Edinburgh to Inverness. Check out all around the cathedral, as well as the river that runs behind it.

Excellent venue Very quiet and beautiful setting. River Tay ran just outside it with plenty scenery. Parking was difficult but we had a lovely walk around the mound to the car park.

This is a ruin in bad condition although getting maintenance at the moment. It has an adjoining church of Scotland. The setting is pleasant beside the river and the grass is well maintained. There is limited historical interest and the ruin is...well, just a ruin. Why go?

Lovely 15th century ruins currently being renovated with gorgeous views along the River Tay. Part is still being used for worship by The Church of Scotland. We heard the choir practicing for a wedding that was getting ready to start. Rustic yet elegant surroundings. We also saw the bagpiper getting ready to lead the wedding processional.

Though scaffolding and renovations interrupted some viewing, I was very impressed with the museum and found much good information there for my research.

I enjoyed sitting in on a practice of the handbell choir. Half of the Cathedral is in ruin and the other half is preserved and used for worship. The contrast is striking and moving as well as educational.

This Cathedral is unique in that part of the structure was made into the parish church, which is still active. It is beautifully set by the banks of a river in a lovely little town. The inside of the ruined cathedral is being worked on so we were not able to enter, but there is a tower with some historic... More

What a lovely place this is. Set on the side of the river Tay and free! Peaceful riverside gardens and a lovely interior where the history is explained in a simple but effective manner. What a find made even better by the beautiful weather
