Inverness Cathedral

Inverness Cathedral, built between 1866-1869, sits on the banks of the River Ness, near Ness Bridge. It’s an interesting place to visit and to pause for reflection.

The Cathedral has impressive vaulted wooden ceilings and the walls are lined with beautifully coloured stained glass windows depicting scenes from the bible. The most striking and largest of which, is the West Window, depicting the Last Judgement.

You may have wandered around the outside and noticed there are no spires. The original design by Alexander Ross had spires, but a lack of funds meant the work could not be completed. Notice the painting of the original design on the back of the North Aisle showing the original design.

The Cathedral has many interesting features and it’s well worth picking up the walk round guide or the guidebook on sale at the entrance when you visit. There are daily services. Throughout the summer there is a café with a small shop open in the Old Boys’ School behind the cathedral.

Inverness Cathedral is only a short walk form the town centre and The Kiltmaker Visitor Centre. There is a Cathedral car park, which is inexpensive and gives good access to the town centre and walks along the River Ness.
