Dunkeld Cathedral was built between 1260 and 1501, and is dedicated to St Columba. It is said that the cathedral houses his relics. Of course, it was smashed up in the Reformation, and was later burned after the battle of Killiecrankie in 1689, by the Jacobites. The nave is in ruins (they were being repaired by Historic Scotland at the time, so we couldn't wander about them) but the choir has been restored in various ways through the years.

|This fellow was a thorough rascal, but his burial effigy was quite impressive, I must confess!|
|These formed some sort of memorial in another area of the cathedral. I love the skulls and bones!|

|The bank - the ditches are roughly where the lines of trees are.|
