New viewpoint at Inverness Castle

 

The North Tower of historic Inverness Castle is to be opened as a tourist attraction by Easter, Highland Council has said.

The local authority owns the tower at the 19th Century criminal and civil courts complex.

A new viewing platform has been created on the tower.

The rest of the castle is to be turned into a visitor centre once new a courts building is constructed on another site in Inverness.

Highland Council, Inverness Common Good Fund and Highlands and Islands Enterprise have all contributed to the cost of the North Tower project, which includes new access, a shop and a stairway to the roof and viewing platform

Two stone dogs thought to have been lost for decades after being removed from a town house have been found in unmarked crates.

It was believed the sculptures had disappeared for good, so two new carved stones were commissioned as part of a refurbishment of Inverness Town Hall.

The dogs were found after the crates were moved from a council depot.

See the link below for full story, I wonder what other treasures are in old crates stored by the council :amazed:
