Dunblane Cathedral 5

Saint Blane first established a Christian site in Dunblane c600 with the Cathedral being one of only a few surviving medieval churches in Scotland. The earliest remains are Romanesque, dating to the 12th century, with most of the rest being 13th century Gothic. The 15th century Choir stalls, including misericords which include representations of a Green Man and a dragon, are some of the finest in Scotland. Near the Cathedral there is a truly delightful small museum in which are displayed another Green Man misericord and other fragments of carved wood from the Cathedral.
