Even on a cold, wet rainy day, the Inverness Castle is a great experience. Can't recommend highly enough. Tremendous history and great views of Inverness.

Beautiful Castle that you can tour. They have info about the castle on different floors up one tower but cannot check out the castle itself as it is in use. You can go to the very top for some great views all over the Inverness City that are worth the trip.

It costs 5 pounds to go up the tower at Inverness Castle and I believe it is worth it. On the way up the tower their are a couple of rooms exploring Scottish legends with impressive graphics.

There is also a room showing a video of notable sites in the Inverness area. Great for visitors and it showed us some amazing sites we unfortunately did not have time to visit.

The view from the top of the tower is great.We were lucky enough to be the only ones up there for most of the time, which was really special. You do not get many experiences in 2019 for 5 pounds and I believe it is worth it.

One cannot "tour" Inverness Castle. The local police station is house here. But, one can go around the outside and get the most fantastic views of the City from the high vantage point.

The place is used by the local city management offices and the local court. It is closed on the weekends. I'm not sure if it possible to visit during the week either. However, as the castle is on a top a hill it is possible to see the whole city. Very pretty views in the afternoon.
