  • Visited on a cold, wet day. Loved the info on each floor as you went up to the viewing deck. We were lucky that the rain stopped briefly so we got some really atmospheric photos with the next rain clo...  more »
  • The castle of Inverness is not an authentic Castle. To go to the Castle, you must climb a small hill. Is not open to the public. You can visit the gardens.

  • The castle surroundings is a must stop visit to Inverness. It is situated in the heart of the city and has plenty of nice views. You can go up to the tower of the castle to have a 360 view of the city.
  • It's not a castle everybody exepcts. Nothing interesting to see or do. Inside there are some offices. It's only nice to walk around the walls to see the view of the town from a higher position
  • The castle of Macbeth. It is now a court. Public access is allowed on the palace grounds and to the north tower.
  • Just passed by it. It's beautiful architecture and its surroundings are lovely. Easy access.
  • It is council buildings and a court house on the site of a previous ancient castle of which I saw no remnants. There is a sign which indicates Castle views but in fact looks over Inverness town and the view is mostly ugly concrete 1960's 1970's buildings. The view from the other side of and across the River is much nicer. I think they put the sign up wrong.
