An amazing video has been released bringing the Inverness Castle project to life.

It is featured on a website dedicated to the venue – https://invernesscastle.scot/– which is being transformed into a tourist attraction.

SNP MSP Fergus Ewing, co-chairman of the Inverness Castle Delivery Group, said: “I am delighted that we’ve reached this important milestone in creating a visitor attraction that will be a gateway for Highland tourism and an international attraction that will be a must-see!

“The details released today illustrate the creativity and innovation that visitors to the Inverness Castle Experience can enjoy when it opens in 2025. We want to make sure that everyone visiting the Inverness Castle Experience has a brilliant time – and that they come back for more on a future visit!

"It is important that we ensure that every visitor has a first-rate experience, inspiring them to venture to other parts of the Highlands, connecting with people and places across the area, and uncovering their own stories as they travel.”

Highland Council's Inverness leader Ian Brown, also co-chairman of the project delivery group, said: “The immersive approach designed by Mather & Co will ensure visitors have a world-class experience at the new attraction, as they are inspired to explore the Highlands to find and create their own stories.

“Visitors will connect to Highland stories through a series of themed immersive rooms, where they can walk through forests, gather round the fire for story time, and witness iconic moments of Highland history.

“The Inverness Castle Experience a very exciting addition to the tourism offer for the Highlands and Scotland as a whole.”

Scottish Government wellbeing economy secretary Neil Gray said: “I welcome further progress in designing an Inverness Castle Experience which can attract tourists from around the world and generate jobs and investment for Inverness and the surrounding area.

“Through the Inverness and Highland City-Region Deal, the Scottish Government is helping create a fair and growing economy which supports local businesses.”

UK government minister for Scotland, Malcolm Offord, said: "It's great to see Inverness Castle is on the High Road to success, with the design update marking another step closer to the site being open to the public.

"Its transformation will create a must-see attraction in keeping with its heritage that will help to boost the region's economy and bring visitors and tourists to the local area.

"The UK Government is supporting the castle through its investment in the project as part of the £53.1 million Inverness and Highland City-Region Deal.”
