The doors of two Inverness landmarks will be thrown open to the public this spring as part to create a “cultural triangle” in the Highland capital.
Inverness Castle, which is currently the home of the city’s sheriff court but has been ear-marked as the future site of a tourist attraction, will open its doors over the long May 8, 9 and 10 weekend.
The recently refurbished Inverness Town House will also be opening its doors to the public on March 7, to coincide with the influx of visitors expected in the city for the Snowman Rally.
Inverness provost Helen Carmichael said: “The public will have an opportunity to come along and see inside the Castle and find out about our exciting plans for its transformation into a first-class tourism attraction.
“I would like to thank High Life Highland and their team of guides, who are helping Highland Council create a cultural triangle of visitor attractions among the Town House, the Museum and Art Gallery, the Castle Viewpoint and Inverness Castle.
“Their support is invaluable.”
Official tours of the refurbished public historic Category A-listed Town House building started in May 2018 following its award-winning renovations.
The dates for the doors-open-days for Inverness Castle are dependent on the council’s purchase of the south tower of the castle building from the Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service concluding as planned at the start of May, and therefore are subject to change.
