Inverness Castle - Scotland

Inverness Castle - Scotland

Sitting on a cliff over the River Ness, Inverness Castle dates back to the 11th century but its modern form was built in 1863. Inverness Castle has been a castle on this site for many centuries in various forms. An earlier incarnation of this castle (11th century) is said to be where Shakespeare's 'Macbeth' was based (Duncan's murder).

The town of Inverness is the capital of the Highlands and the northernmost city in the UK. It is located at the northern end of the Great Glen where the River Ness enters the Moray Firth.
