Trip Planner: Europe / UK / Scotland / Scottish Highlands / Ross and Cromarty / Fortrose / Fortrose Cathedral
Amid the shrubbery, expansive lawns, and gravestones sits Fortrose Cathedral, the impressive ruins of a 14th-century cathedral. The eerie site is quiet and moody, preserving what's left of the Episcopal seat of the medieval Scottish diocese of Ross. The cathedral was built of red sandstone, evidenced by the chapter house and nave's south aisle that still stand today. The masonry is impressive: notice the fine stone vaulting and elaborate window tracery. After the Scottish Reformation the site continued to be used as a church for the town but eventually fell into disrepair in the 16th and early 17th centuries.
