Castle revamp is gathering pace
The ambitious multimillion-pound project aimed at transforming Inverness Castle into a major visitor attraction took another step closer to reality as Workhaus Projects was awarded the contract to carry out the interpretation for the interior of the Inverness Castle Experience. The firm will aim to combine creativity, design, technology and craftsmanship to create a world-class visitor experience.
“It will be a magnet for visitors to the city centre‼️ It will breathe new life into the old town. Certainly looking like an inspirational creative attraction‼️ Well done everyone involved in it.” – Don Lawson
“Brilliant! Great to see there would be wheelchair access to the roof!” – Amanda Davidson
“I don’t think the lasers and fairy dust were necessary in these images because the project looks pretty impressive so far as it is. It would be great if there was a couple of weeks when it first opens when locals can get free entry to see how much work has gone in to the whole process and to view our beautiful rose window again.” – Kim Corbett
“Beautiful. Something to admire in midst of all the doom and gloom in the world just now. Visitors will love it.” – Myra Brauer
“Love the priorities of this city. Complete disgrace. Maybe it’s time to start spending on the basic needs of Inverness and its people rather than creating an extremely expensive visual for the tourists.” – Stevie Innes
Changes planned for rubbish bins
Households will get an extra bin as part of changes to save money and increase the amount of waste recycled. Current green general waste bins will take plastics, tins, foil and cartons while the blue bins will be used for paper and card and a new grey bin will be for general waste.
“Chaos and confusion!! Why the need to change the purpose of the use of the existing coloured bins? Would it not have been easier to introduce a new grey bin and ask that the contents of the blue bin be split into paper/cardboard and tins/plastics. There will be someone somewhere getting paid a pretty penny to come up with this silly idea....and they want to cut costs??” – J Sneddon, Isle of Skye
