Inverness Castle

Local nameInverness Castle
LocationInverness, UK

Inverness Castle sits on a cliff overlooking the River Ness in Inverness, Scotland. The red sandstone structure, displaying an early castellated style, is the work of a few nineteenth-century architects. William Burn designed the Sheriff Court, Joseph Mitchell the bastioned enclosing walls, and Thomas Brown II the District Court, originally built as a prison. It is built on the site of an 11th-century defensive structure. Today it houses Inverness Sheriff Court. There has been a castle on this site for many centuries. In April 2017 the north tower of the castle was opened to the public as a view point. At present, only the castle grounds and the north tower are open to the public. The remainder of the castle is not open to the public.
