One of Scotland’s noblest medieval churches. The lower part of the tower is Romanesque, but the larger part of the building is of the 13th century. Sir Rowand Anderson restored the Cathedral in 1889-93.

Despite being ravaged during the reformation I was well restored in the late 1800's and beginning of 20th century. new stained glass windows have been installed as donations have been made. One thing that intrigued me was a tone at the rear of the church witch gives the names of all the bishops since 600c approx. When I questioned the... More

Family trip over from Canada. Really enjoyed seeing the cathedral and graveyard. So much older than anything in Canada! My children were impressed.

If you are in the Dunblane area then a wee visit to this Kirk is a must. Photo opportunities abound and it has a very interesting history as well. On this occasion we did not go into it because it was a Sunday and as its a proper place of worship we didn't want to disturb the congregation. but there... More

The Cathedral has a vivid and varied history going back to the so-called Dark Ages. There is also a very moving and uplifting commemoration of the children from Dunblane School who died. This is well worth a visit even on a time-limited stop over.

Dunblane Cathedral is fascinating. From its origins in the 10th century, the cathedral has survived the extremes of the Scottish Reformation, a descent in to ruin and the possibility of inappropriate restoration. There are many points of interest and our visit lasted over an hour. The cathedral's information volunteer provided a very knowledgable insight in to the history of the... More

If you like old ruins and monuments, this is a very interesting exhibit. It is in Dunblane, near Doune Castle, which is a must visit.

Went here for a handbell ringing/Rock Choir/carol concert. A great evening in a wonderful building. It's noticeable that much of the inside was open to the elements for a long time - unlike other churches, the rock has been eroded inside as well as out, making it look a lot rougher than it otherwise would.
