Approach to site

Visitors reach the entrance along a 50m level tarmac path from the street.

The south door is accessed by a ramp. The door will be kept open to allow maximum ventilation and minimise touch points.

Visiting the site

Visitors will be asked to follow a one-way route through the cathedral. Please follow the signage. Access to some spaces may be limited.

Please use the available hand sanitiser on entering the cathedral. In line with Scottish Government guidance, face coverings should be worn inside the building. Let staff know if you are exempt.

The nave, choir and chapter house are on the level on stone or tile floors.

Many of the pews will be closed off, but areas of seating will be available in pews in the north and south aisles.


The cathedral is surrounded by a graveyard. This has tarmac paths, but is mostly grassed.


No public toilets are currently open in Dunblane.


Assistance dogs are permitted at all our sites and within roofed areas. Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times and not left unattended at any time. Owners must pick up after their dogs.
