Expect bonny views as the North Tower of Scotland's historic Inverness Castle opens as a tourist attraction
Scotland's historic Inverness Castle has long been one of the country's most stunning attractions, and now its North Tower is set to be opened as a tourist attraction by Easter.
When the work is completed, the viewpoint will offer spectacular views of Inverness, looking south over the River Ness and beyond and north over the Ness Bridge towards the Black Isle.
The project includes new access, a shop and a stairway to the roof and viewing platform, and the latter will be known as the Castle Viewpoint.
Entry will be free for the first week for visitors and locals who wish to get a look at how the tower has been transformed, according to Margaret Davidson, leader of Highland Council.
Provost Helen Carmichael said, “The views are spectacular from the top and I am confident that visitors to Inverness will be delighted with the Castle Viewpoint. It adds significantly to the city’s draw as a worldwide tourist destination.”
