We were surprised to find the cathedral open and wandered in off our woodland walk. Open, airy with beautiful stained glass. Interesting displays including the tomb of the 'Wolf of Badenoch!' (A knight)

This is a lovely old cathedral sitting in beautiful grounds with stunning views all around. Part of the cathedral is covered in scaffolding but there is plenty of history to see and a working clock which chimes exactly when it should!

You must visit this Cathedral if anywhere near here! Absolutely beautiful and full of history. Ask John for a tour and the story on him unearthing the tombs! It's is so interesting!

The Cathedral was built over many centuries and is still used in part today. The ancient stonework with the bell tower is being restored. It is set by the river Tay and is well worth a visit to appreciate the quiet atmosphere.

When we went in there was a young lady playing the piano extremely beautifully. Lovely place steeped in history. Outside there was a part sectioned of for renovation which I will need to go to see when complete. The architecture, workmanship that has gone into the building all those years ago is worth noting.

The Cathedral church of Dunkeld is beautifully located on the bank of the River Tay near the centre of the town. There is a history of religion on its site dating from the 9th century and the presently seen building dates from the 13th century.
