About
The Castle Viewpoint offers fabulous 360 degree views of the Highland Capital and many of the famous landmarks in the surrounding area. If the weather is inclement, or you are not able to climb the stairs, you can enjoy the beautiful views via pre-recorded, narrated drone footage in our Round Room on the ground floor. PLEASE BE ADVISED that we will be closed from 4pm on Fri 20 Mar 2020 until further notice. Apologies for any disappointment.

The view from the castle surrounds is excellent. However, the fact that the Castle is inaccessible taints the whole experience.

The view is amazing. When visiting it was quite windy, but it would be wonderful on a sunny day. There are benches to sit and relax. A car park near by.

Although Inverness Castle itself was shut at the time of my visit you can still stand outside it and admire the amazing view.

There are signposts dotted around the city centre showing you how to get to the castle.

I would recommend going to the other side of the river to get a great view of the castle as well.

It was worth a visit even though the castle was closed for renovation. The views were great and it's worth the walk and the time spent there.

This is a definite recommendation if you are visiting Inverness for the first time or want beautiful views of the city. On a sunny day you can see far and wide and can really take in all of the wonderful scenery that Inverness has to offer. We were lucky enough it was so bright as we managed to get some really lovely photos here. Would definitely recommend it.

Unfortunately the attraction can only be occupied by single family bubble at one time, so limited time slots are allocated. Result is 20 mins taking in the tower view point and 3 exhibition rooms with long video presentations. The attraction needs splitting into two halves - with time in the tower followed by the exhibition rooms, with each half occupied by a bubble. Shame as this is a nice little attraction.

When we arrived we were advised to watch the film and then go straight to the viewpoint as there was a 25 min time limit. We, incorrectly, thought this was the time limit for the viewpoint as there were a couple of rooms to look in on the way down. We had just entered the 1st room when we were kicked out as the 25 mins was up. The video took about 10 mins and 2 or 3 mins to walk up all the stairs. There was not a single person waiting or anyone else in the place. The view was nice but 25 mins is not long enough when there are a lot of stairs.

Only a short walk from the museum to the castle but worth the views across the city, the view of the cathedral is worth a photograph. Pity the castle is surrounded by boards as work is being carried out.

A mandatory spot when travelling in Inverness. Good viewpoint to make some nice photos, especially when on a clear weather day.

I liked that on our way to the top we were greeted with stories about the area. The viewing platform, although being small offered great views over Inverness.
