Owner description: One of Scotland’s noblest medieval churches. The lower part of the tower is Romanesque, but the larger part of the building is of the 13th century. Sir Rowand Anderson restored the Cathedral in 1889-93.

“such a special venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

my dad got married here june 2013. it was a gorgeous venue. great layout. unforgettable :)
they had a harpist, which held well sound wise, and ladies singing which also sounded great. tiered seating which is great, this was in the smaller room at the top of the cathedral. which made viewing the wedding so much easier, no one was straining to see the bride or flower girls walk up the aisle.

“Peaceful and uplifting.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

Dunblane cathedral sits at the top of the High Street, above the banks of Allan Water and riverside walks It dominates the Dunblane skyline.
The peaceful atmosphere is both calming and uplifting. There is a real sense of the timelessness of this ancient building. The most notable memorial is to the children who died in the school massacre. It is absolutely beautiful, inspiring and comforting.
When you leave the Cathedral head away from the town towards the Laighills, walking along the side of Allan Water and notice the marvellous gardens constructed and planted by the Dunblane in Bloom gardening group. A little further on there are hill walks, riverside walks, a children's playground , a skateboard park and a couple of football fields. Dunblane Cathedral and its environs are well worth a visit.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

Dinteredn't even know a Cathedral existed in Dunblane. Walked down from the hotel and entered with no real thoughts as to what we would experience. It did look huge from the outside. Luckily a trainee organist was playing so the atmosphere inside was touching. Lots of information about the Cathedral at various parts. Recently at York Minster and whilst not as big as York there was lots of information and local history. Well worth a visit.
