Dunblane Cathedral's handbell ensembles have an international reputation and have appeared many times on television. Handbells are one of the world's oldest instruments yet the handbells used today are sophisticated precision instruments which produce a beautifully rich sound. Dunblane Cathedral has Scotland's largest range of handbells and  handbells are very much a visual instrument too as audiences enjoy the synchronised movement of the shining handbells.
