Beautiful history and stunning building. Doors open every day and many many visitors. We spent a couple of hours reading stones inserted in walls and sitting in the peaceful atmosphere. Can't believe how lovely it was.

This is a beautiful and very old cathedral, originally Roman Catholic and now Church of Scotland. The stained glass windows are beautiful. The history is remarkable both ancient past, more recent past (the Andrew Carnegie relationship was interesting to me (Pittsburgh, PA meets Dornoch)) and very recent (Madonna). If you are in this area looking around, it is well worth... More

An awe inspiring building. I attended a wedding there but returned later in my stay for a better look round. Absolutely amazing.

This is a beautiful cathedral set in a small but pretty village of Dornoch. The most beautiful stained glass windows to admire and lots of interesting history to read all around. Very peaceful.

This whole area is like something out of Disney. Madonna got married in the beautiful little church. There is the jail across the road and lots of great cafes. Walk down to the beach via the golf club. There is a great deal to do here in wonderful surroundings.

Simply lovely cathedral, full of history and a wonderful atmosphere . We went to the Sunday service and everyone so welcoming and friendly. The lady minister gave a very interesting sermon and a very entertaining service!
