St. Andrew's Cathedral
The Cathedral doesn't really stand out between the other churches in Inverness, such as the Old High Kirk or the Free North Church. One of the reasons might be that the original design included two spires which were never built due to lack of funds. The church was built between 1866 and 1869 in the neogothic style which was the fashion of its time. Note the beautiful angel font in the entry hall by Danish artist Thorvaldsen as well as the icons given to the church by the Tsar of Russia.
St Andrews Cathedral
The Cathedral Church of Saint Andrew, Mother Church of the Diocese of Moray, Ross and Caithness, set in a glorious riverside setting, was the first new Cathedral to be completed in Britain since the Reformation. Built between 1866 and 1869 in the Gothic style to the design of Alexander Ross, it features twin towers with a ring of ten bells, an octagonal Chapter House which now acts as the Choristers' Song School, monolithic pillars of polished Peterhead granite, stained glass, sculptures, a carved reredos, an angel font after Thorvaldsen (Copenhagen), a founder's memorial as well as icons presented by the Tsar of Russia.
