Highland Council to leave Inverness Town House after 140 years

Inverness Town House, an A-listed building, has had a £7.4 million renovation which was completed in 2021.

Built in the Flemish-Baronial style in 1878-82, it was the headquarters of Inverness Burgh Council until the 1960s and has been used as council offices ever since.

It is used to host civic and hospitality events throughout the year and is regarded as a key tourist attraction in the city. It is located next to Inverness Castle which is currently being redeveloped as a visitor attraction centre and is expected to provide a major boost to the city centre when completed in 2025.

By moving out of the Town House, the council expects to save £370,000 a year.
