“Granny we can see your washing line!”

IMG_9032To the top of the Victorian castle on the banks of the River Ness in the Scottish highland capital, Inverness.

A fantastic new viewpoint, at the top of the tallest turret in the photo above, offers panoramic views of the city and out to sea across the Moray Firth.  It’s a relatively new attraction, and local people are making the most of seeing their city from this new perspective; across the castle turrets, over the River Ness, with the cathedral on the opposite bank of the river, and out to sea.

Apologies for the breezy sound but I have kept it because I love the comment a little girl makes to her granny!

If you want to experience these spectacular views, the  seasonal opening times are below.  Be warned though, the queue to the top of the tower is up a narrow staircase with rooms to visitor exhibitions off it. It can be a bit congested, even in quiet times. Only 10 people are allowed on the viewing platform at any time, it is accessed though a turnstile on the staircase. Not so bad when it’s quiet, but busy times will be more of a challenge.
