Inverness Castle (Scottish Gaelic: Caisteal Inbhir Nis) sits on a cliff overlooking the River Ness, in Inverness, Scotland. The red sandstone structure evident today was built in 1836 by architect William Burn. It is built on the site of an 11th-century defensive structure. Today, it houses Inverness Sheriff Court. There has been a castle at this site for many centuries. The castle itself is not open to the public but the grounds are.

The castle is said to have been built by Malcolm III of Scotland, after he had razed to the ground the castle in which Macbeth had, according to much later tradition, murdered Malcolm’‘s father Duncan I.
