There isn't much evidence of St. Columba's visit left, but the church has an interesting design and the docents had lots of good information about the church as well as Inverness in general. There are several very interesting WWI artifacts at the site.

Great old Church, crowded Churchyard. Closed when I was there but the history is evident outside, as is the printed history right there. You feel the ancient surrounding you while standing there.

This is the oldest church in Inverness and we were also told it was one of the places some scenes from Outlander were filmed. This is beautiful inside and out and the graveyard is quite picturesque as well.

Take a moment while you are in Inverness and walk through this churchyard. It is peaceful and energizing. It is loaded with Scottish history and the view of the river is great.
