Inverness Castle sits high up overlooking the River Ness in Inverness.

The castle you see today is a red sandstone building built in 1836 by the architect William Burn. It is built on the site of an earlier 11th-century defensive structure.

The castle is the Inverness Sheriff Court and is NOT open to the public although you can visit the castle grounds and the north tower.
