One street back you can find the semi- derelict Fortrose Cathedral. Quite an impressive set of ruins. If you are passing definitely worth stopping.

Worth a visit if you are passing by Run by Historical Scotland but free to visit Information available on sign boards at the site

We were here looking for Dolphins and when we saw a signpost to the Cathedral we stopped by to have a look. We walked around it and took some photos, very well kept grounds.

Interesting history behind these ruins. Would have been a beautiful building in its day. Worth a visit.

I can't talk to the information available at the site as it was late at night that I visited when passing. It's well lit up of an evening and makes for a different aspect of photography with daytime visits. Having done the Abbey tour earlier...More

Nice ruin but not much to see and little information, also most of the ruin is fenced off. Looks good lit up at night but you won't miss much if you don't visit here.

I was fascinated by this place. You can feel the history of it and the Graves surrounding it. Great spot for pictures and to have a coffee and a lunch in hand.

Set behind the High Street in the village of Fortrose the cathedral is an OK place to visit but not worth going out of your way for. Best part is it is free!

Very cool ruin's. Worth a visit themselves but if you can also time your visit with the St Boniface fair then its doubly worth a visit! A lovely little village to visit too.
