St Andrews Cathedral is on the west side of the River Ness, a short scenic walk from the City centre. The Cathedral was completed in 1869 for the seat of the Bishop of Moray, Ross and Caithness. The Cathedral is good for photos inside and out, although many trees make exterior photos testing.

The Riverside Walks in Inverness are extremely popular with many fine Churches to view. The walk north, on the east side, runs just over one mile to Inverness Marina and Moray Firth. You can take Boat Tours from the Marina to view Dolphins.

The Walk south, on the west side past the Cathedral, runs about one and a half miles to Bught Park and Whin Park. Inverness Riverside Large Image.
