The Cathedral is located at the end of a pretty street in the centre of Dunkeld. It has a magnificent view over the river Tay. Entrance is free. Half of the cathedral is open to the public and the other half is being restored.

Stopped off at the cathedral whilst heading north on the A9. We knew we were late in visiting, so dipped in very quickly to see the tomb of "The Wolf". We were greeted by a wonderful man, who told us lots of facts and tales...More

Beautiful Cathedral in a tranquil setting ,intimate space inside with a very fine piece of Sculpture (in wood) of the Cross by Kirsty Laing. A hidden gem.

This was the first stop in our 3 day Isle of Skye Tour. Very beautiful church building. Had nice wooded surroundings and the town nearby was also an interesting attraction. Bought their local smoked salmon and enjoyed it for breakfast.

Visited on a beautiful sunny weekend. Plenty of information to read about the history of the cathedral. The grounds are very well tended with seating facing the river. Lots of trees for a bit of shade if needed and lively and cool inside the church....More

We saw this cathedral from afar while trying to local a restroom (ironically). It ended up being a really lovely place to visit. It is well maintained and has an absolutely beautiful exterior, interior, and a charming river nearby.

The cathedral is mostly ruins. It's very beautiful on its own, but the grounds are also very nice. There is still an operational church in the non-ruined parts. Free to enter
