This Cathedral is open to all. It was very peaceful with you able to walk all the way to the high altar. Unlike London Cathedrals which charge to enter this wonderful place is free with donations if you wish. The parking on the road is / was 50p. The Cathedral is better value than the local council. What ever your... More

Set alongside the river Ness there is a local car park which is reasonably priced giving you value for time to explore the cathedral and the city. The architecture of this building is fantastic from the layout to the decoration inside. Beautiful stained glass windows... More

The Cathedral is very impressive sitting by the River Ness. When I went there was only a few visitors looking around. I love stain glass and this Cathedral did not disappoint at all. They are large and vibrant. It was lovely just to walk around and take in the lovely atmosphere. My only disappointment was I couldn't find any candles... More

I was thrilled to attend the service-I am a church organist. Members outside invited me to tea and goodies at the boys school next door-all very friendly

This is a beautiful Cathedral, both inside and outside. It's situated on the river bank and is also lovely to see from the other side of the bank. Inside it is lovely and peaceful. A must-see when in Inverness.

It is not anyhow special, but if You are in Inverness, then probably it is nice to take 10 mintes in here. There You cna find some interesting fact on the history of the church. In the surroundings You will find typical Scottish spirit of 1900's. The area was really worth to visit.
