Beautiful semi ruined cathedral in a gorgeous spot overlooking the river Tay. It has a fascinating history and contains the tomb of the Wolf of Badenoch.

We were surprised to find the cathedral open and wandered in off our woodland walk. Open, airy with beautiful stained glass. Interesting displays including the tomb of the 'Wolf of Badenoch!' (A knight)

Visiting Dunkeld the Cathedral draws Tourists like a magnet . A lovely church inside and the ruins at the rear are being renovated by Historic Scotland . Set by the banks of the Tay a superb location for weddings with the grounds running down to the Tay.Built in 1318 the church itself was reroofed in1660
