    Well worth a pop in
    Well worth a pop into cathedral or rather the attached church of Scotland. Cathedral I think historic scotland care with scaffolding all around. Church well maintained by donations. Small interesting museum and a resting place for the despised wolf of badenoch someone never to be forgiven for his raising down of elgin cathedral. At the start of the woodland trail to the house hotel by the river near centre of town

    Worth a visit (make a donation)
    The parts that have been restored are amazing. So much history. Unfortunately I couldn't stop giggling at the Duke of Atholl connection (Watch Made of Honor. The clip is at around 1:30). Parts of the building are in disrepair and dangerous, so there's a lot of scaffolding. The grounds right along the River Tay are beautiful, with a great view of the Dunkeld bridge.

    Cathedral at Dunkeld
    One of the majestic cathedrals in Scotland - well maintained and tidy. Surrounded by soothing greens and has a beautiful river (River Tay) flowing close by. Recommended for a relaxing afternoon with friends and family.

    Fortress of the Caledonians - beautiful old church
    This church is beautiful and ancient 700 years old with megalithic stones inside. Dunkeld - literally means Fortress of the Caledonians. I loved being in this church and reliving history. They had a gigantic church organ that was an awesome sight.

Part ruin, part cathedral still holding services. We had a tour guide give us the history of the city and the Jacobite battle that took place.

Well the cathedral is nice but not worth a detour.
The back part was under construction and could not be visited.
The grounds are nice especially the part down at the river.
Bring your picnic!

We visited Dunkeld Cathedral and spoke with Kenny, a local volunteer who helps with the upkeep of the Cathedral, fundraising, etc.
Kenny provided us with a most informative and helpful overview and gave us a very interesting insight into the work that goes on behind the scenes. It was an unexpected pleasure to chance upon such a helpful and dedicated volunteer, who was so willing to share his knowledge.

The gates were locked and we learned from locals that it was too dangerous to walk round the cathedral. This was disappointing but clearly the building was falling into disrepair and needing a lot of money to fettle it. It’s a beautiful building in a lovely little township.

This would be a great working cathedral but it's such a shame that it's closed as it's a top class cathedral and the location is pretty.

Dunkeld and its Cathedral were under the care and management of our Duncan ancestors so it was a mist visit and holds the oldest grave in our clan going back some 1600 years! It's a quaint village and a short walk from the parking areas around the grounds. There is also a very pleasant and peaceful area to sit outside and have a picnic. A few nice shops to visit too!
