Inverness Castle, perched on a cliff overlooking the River Ness in the Scottish Highlands, holds a storied history dating back to the 11th century. The current structure, built in 1836, serves both as a courthouse and a symbol of Inverness’s heritage. Its red sandstone facade and crenellated towers contribute to its picturesque presence in the cityscape. The castle grounds offer panoramic views of Inverness and the surrounding landscapes, creating an iconic backdrop. Visitors can explore the castle’s exterior and enjoy the scenic beauty of the River Ness, while the interior houses the Inverness Castle Viewpoint, providing an elevated perspective of the Highland capital.
