Dunblane cathedral is a constant. There's something about it's scale and beauty that transcends the need for awesome bigness. It's simply a beautiful place and worth a visit.

The historic cathedral is imposing, towering above the tiny town of Dunblane. We visited partly to keep out the cold and were rewarded by a warm interior with friendly warm staff. Beautiful interior with stunning choral chamber complete with beautiful stained glass windows.

This is first tower I've seen with stone joists supporting the roof rather than timber and dates back to the eighth century

Peaceful and lovely location and well situated for an overall visit to Dunblane. Small town with friendly people and the Cathedral oversees the town and adds grandeur to it.

Beautiful medieval cathedral - very interesting architecture, very interesting history. Moved by the tombs of the 3 sisters presumably murdered to keep one of them, Margaret Drummond, from marrying James IV which would have then prohibited him from marrying a Tudor queen. Some interesting architectural pieces from early, early Christian times that have interesting carvings on them. Beautiful stained glass... More

Managed to catch up on the history of the cathedral while attending a choir concert. There is plenty of information available around the cathedral building. The cathedral is well worth a visit as is Dunblane itself.
