What is the Inverness Castle Experience? Dè a tha san Turas tro Chaisteal Inbhir Nis?

The Inverness Castle Experience will be a new visitor attraction in the city centre, celebrating the spirit of the Highlands’ past, present and future. The existing castle buildings and esplanade gardens are being transformed from their original use as the home of Inverness’ prison and courts into a celebration of what makes the Highlands of Scotland a special place to live, work and visit.

Take a journey through the gardens, the two towers and new restaurant, bars and shop for a sensory experience inspired by stories gathered from the Highlands about its landscape, culture, heritage and people. Your journey will be guided by a seanchaidh – storyteller – who will help to reveal stories which celebrate the spirit of the Highlands along your route and to find hidden gems in every room.

In the North Tower of the castle, the Highland Music Experience and Bar will offer a place for people to come together to share the best of Highland music, food and drink. The Experience will highlight and acknowledge the contribution of musicians to the rich culture of the Highlands. It was announced recently that the opening exhibition will feature the music and stories of Runrig, recognising the band’s impact on the area’s cultural scene over the past half century.
