The cathedral is now open and we are delighted to welcome you back. Find out more about our re-opening plans at restarthistory.scot.

This magnificent ruin dates back to the 13th Century and is one of Scotlands most beautiful medieval buildings.

Almost destroyed in 1390 by Alexander Stewart, the infamous ‘Wolf of Badenoch’. You can see the Bishop’s home at Spynie Palace, two miles north of the town. Magnificent views from the NW tower.

Apart from the towers and the Chapter House, the Cathedral is accessible to visitors using wheelchairs or with limited mobility. In wet weather the grass areas can be soft.

The shop and display areas are accessible with care and if time permits the steward will give a tour.
