Inverness Castle makeover visualised

Highland Council and LDN Architects have released a new set of perspectives illustrating their design intent for the A-listed Inverness Castle.

Efforts to transform the landmark into a visitor attraction are well advancedwith a single-storey link building set to join two existing towers with extensive glazing elements affording expansive views across the city.

Work will also take place to create a new western entrance from the River Ness, reinstate the main entrance and foyer and incorporate features such as an 18th century well.

The landscaped grounds will also be given a fresh lease of life with the creation of a public outdoor space. It is hoped this work will catalyze future tourism post-pandemic. 

Inverness Castle was designed by architect William Burn in 1836 to serve as the city's sheriff court and prison.

 A repurposing of the castle has been made possible by relocation of the courts
