Standing in front of Dornoch Cathedral is a Grade B-listed LinkExternal link cast iron drinking fountain dated 1892. It features a small cherub holding a water jar, in the centre of a shallow circular dish borne on a pedestal under a canopy carried by four columns with medallions over the arches. A decorative column bearing a gas lamp is on the top of the canopy.
