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.

While in Inverness we made our way across the River Ness to see this great church. Really enjoyed walking the grounds as well. Worth a stop for sure.

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.

The volunteers were knowledgeable and very helpful. They gave us great insight to the history of this old church that is still in use today!

We did not go inside as it was closed but the outside and grounds are worth a look. There are wild rabbits running around too. There is an information board outside giving you the history of the church.

One of the oldest, if not the oldest churches in Inverness with a graveyard filled with Frasers. The exterior of the church is architecturally very interesting. Unfortunately, the church was not open to the public when we were there, but we spent a bit of...More
