Owner description: Dunblane Cathedral is a beautiful medieval church in Dunblane which dates as far back as the 12th century. Dunblane Cathedral receives high but well earned praise for a building smaller than some English parish churches, lacking the architectural flourishes and cohesion of most other cathedrals; and one which only narrowly survived the threat of demolition to make way for the railway. The tower is from the late 11th century, offset, and slightly squint on the south. Admire the Romanesque arched windows in the lower storeys, the upper stage and parapet which date from 1500, bearing the arms of Bishop Chisholm, which may originally have been freestanding. The Nave, dating back to 1240 is possibly the finest part of the cathedral. It is eight bays long, tall and narrow, with aisles and a galleried clerestory. Its principal attraction is its simple proportions, clustered shafts, and graceful clerestory windows in the west wall.

I loved this site, the cathedral is situated in a gorgeous little town. It's one of the oldest cathedrals in Scotland, with beautiful architecture and stained glass. Worth the visit.

A lovely place to see.... A lovely story of history from this small town cathedral - plus it's free for a quick wander round.

Went here before traveling back home. Was a very interesting church and the gentleman that showed us around was very knowledgable. We were able to climb the stairs to get a great view of the church, which my daughter who is 10 thought was very cool.

Free entry and you can go into every nook and cranny there.
You won't spend long here but worth a visit
