  • While in Inverness we made our way across the River Ness to see this great church. Really enjoyed walking the grounds as well. Worth a stop for sure.  more »
  • Beautiful gothic church externally estae professing Protestantism. Its interior is simple, not as refined as the façade. I had the pleasure of talking with the pastor who explained to me about your story. Next door is the cemetery.

  • I am not sure but I guess it is the symbol of Inverness. I mean the view around the church looks so peaceful and beautiful!! And Be careful once you cross the bridge because the bridge is shaking !! but dont worry because nothing will happen to you :)
  • We just wanted to take a look at the church and graveyard and got a full tour with a very friendly guide who seemed to know everything about the church and its history. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Beautiful church. It is also a nice point to take photos in the Ness Walk.
  • Nice architecture and setting over the river.
  • Kirking of the council every September worth seeing
