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.Download Download See more
