The Scottish Episcopal Cathedral is well worth a visit. St. Andrew's Cathedral has an interesting interior with nave arcades of Peterhead granite and a variety of corbels over the arches showing the Apostles and senior clerics of the Church. The Bishop's Throne, Baptismal Font and Altar Reredos are fine furnishings which demand appreciation. Caen stone has been used in the... More

Undergoing exterior renovation, but stunning inside with an amazing history. Right on the Ness Walk on the river.

This is not a York Minster or Notre Dame either in scale or in design. What it is, however is a nicely laid out, but modest cathedral, situated near the banks of the River Ness. It's obviously a working church as seen by the meeting of 20 or so people being held near the entrance when we visited. We were... More

One thing you should do is take a look at the cathedral from a distance and I bet you'll be thinking like me: What this cathedral really needs is a bell tower or two. It looks like they were accidentally left off. But, that said, the building and site is in very good condition and some very professional restoration work... More

The Saint Andrews Cathedral isn't a very old church, especially considering the long history of Britain, but it is a very picturesque building. Located on the west bank of the River Ness and just across the river from Inverness Castle. Everyone at the church was welcoming for tourist visitors and we stopped by for a quick look inside. The nave... More

We attended the Sunday 11:00 a.m. service. What a joy. The 20 member choir sung most of the service and it was beautiful. The Bishop welcomed us and chatted for a few moments. A very personable fellow.

Quick visit to St Andrews Cathedral - we were made very welcome! Lovely stained glass windows and sculptures. Kids were encouraged to explore and even try and spot Nessie!

Although not as large or as intricate as many cathedrals it was nice to be able to enter the building and have a look round without have to go through a pay desk as is so common now in many cathedrals. Instead there are notices up saying how much it costs to keep the building going and asking you to... More
