Taken here by a friend, we found this small cathedral a very charming place! A quick visit is a good idea if you pass near by! Tip if the place: if you stay nearby, check the program for evening concerts in the cathedral.

What a beautiful place - the stained glass windows are breathtaking, such vivid colours. Plenty of information about the place tells the history - a great sense of peace as well.

We arrived at this Church of Scotland Church whilst a Service was taking place in a side Chapel. A fairly blunt notice on the main doors required 'tourists' not to enter during the Service - no indication of when it started or might finish was...More
