I was at a wedding in this stunning former church building. There are beautiful murals on the walls depicting religious scenes. The acoustics are a bit tricky to cope with due to the echo and would advise the use of amplification to distribute the sound...More

Well worth checking when tours are available. The painted walls are stunning, and the knowledgable guide explained the background to each image so clearly. Truly Scotland's Sistine Chapel!
