Create an itinerary including Dornoch Cathedral
Visit Dornoch Cathedral to experience the tranquil spirituality of the Scottish Highlands. Originally built in the 13th century, the cathedral was severely damaged in a fire during a 16th-century clan war. Today's structure was the result of a rebuilding process that started back in the Victorian era. The site's quaint atmosphere is punctuated by interesting details, from gaping gargoyles to stained-glass windows dedicated to the Scottish-American industrialist and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. The interior's renowned acoustics make it a frequent concert venue. Check the cathedral's website for a full schedule of services and special events.

  • This is a nice wee cathedral. I love the bell tower and I like the colour. The graveyard is neat and visiting is a must.

  • Wonderful small cathedral just off the high street. Always interesting to have a wander around such places.
  • Beautiful, peaceful cathedral with loads of stained glass windows. Breathtakingly beautiful and free!
  • The cathedral was still closed to the general public due to the pandemic as of mid-October so we only took shots of the outside during the day and at night , small but impressive it dominates the central area of Dornoch and at night when lit up itโ€™s a nice place to take a walk round.
  • Beautiful building ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
  • Very quiet place with a long history. I didn't like the modern Version of donation possibility.
