Difficult to find without asking someone. It's amazing to see that one half of the building is open to the elements (don't go inside); and the other is still a functioning religious building. The grounds by the river Tay are a wonderful place to picnic...More

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

Great place to visit. Even the graveyard tells us some fine History of people who lived there.The carved stones, the impressive tomb of the knight, the mural memory to fallen soldiers, all worth spending some time. Surroundings are relaxing and well maintained.

Great for a leisurely stroll. Enjoy the Conservation Village, the Cathedral grounds with some majestic trees and fine riverside views, and of course the Cathedral which is undergoing some sympathetic restoration at present.

Very interesting grave yard. Cathedral full of history. Quiet setting for reflection. Lovely woodland walk by the river to get to the Cathedral from Dunkeld House.
