Dornach cathedral was completed in 1239 and renovated between 1835-1837 and again in 1924. It has the most beautiful stained glass windows - 28 in all. There are many memorials to the locals from the war. It's worth a look.

Hi there - yes, there are services at 11:00am on Sunday mornings. The cathedral is a fully operational church, part of the Church of Scotland. I attended a wedding there (fabulous location), and the female minister is a hoot!
