Inverness Castle Viewpoint » History

Inverness Castle comprises two 19th century castellated buildings – an 1830s courthouse and an 1840s prison – built on the site of the predecessor castle and Hanoverian barracks which were blown up by Jacobites in 1746. It occupies a prominent height above the River Ness, in the heart of the city, and is easily Inverness’s most dominant structure. It is listed category A, meaning it is of national or more than national importance.
