Finding ourselves at this magnificent cathedral was such an amazing experience! The River Tay flows gently by this historical site. We definitely recommend a stop here! So thankful we were able to visit. Take the path from the village car park and listen to the...More

You can spend a short time here or take an audio guide and spend a ton of time here, both inside and on the grounds. My favorite time spent was outside, petting a very sweet cat and watching a fisherman fly fish on the River...More

Part of the cathedral was undergoing renovation when we visited. It was a quiet and peaceful and the riverbank looked most inviting. Unfortunately, we were pressed for time and couldn't stay for long.

No tourist buzz here. This is a beautiful Cathedral in a forest setting. Storybook setting in a beautiful forest, I suggest staying at the Dunkeld House Hotel and walking the path along the river or the one through the woods to visit. Just beautiful!

A wonderful piece of history situated beside the quietly flowing river Tay. Really interesting both inside and out.

The cathedral itself is nice, but I feel the surrounding is even better. The weather was unusually good when we went, and we ended up spending time near the river - the scene was beautiful with the river and the bridge in the background.

The one thing that i think attractive is that the location is on the riverside and the garden provide space for people to stroll, sit on the bench while enjoying the view over the river and the bridge not far from it. At the moment...More
