    Fergus Ewing MSP, Co-chair of the Inverness Castle Delivery Group, said:

“We are very excited to be announcing this next chapter in the story of Inverness castle experience.”

“The construction work is progressing well and the designs for each aspect of the Inverness Castle Experience are fully developed. 

“Workhaus Projects will now begin the process of bringing those designs to life, for visitors to enjoy when the Inverness Castle Experience opens in 2025.”

Cllr Ian Brown, Leader of Inverness City and Area and Co-chair of the Inverness Castle Delivery Group, said:

“We are thrilled to have partnered with Workhaus Projects, supporting the delivery of what will undoubtedly become one of the Highlands’ leading visitor attractions.

“This project is part of a list of projects planned by The Highland Council which seek to rejuvenate and revamp the region’s cultural and heritage attractions, so that the Highlands can continue to attract and appeal to visitors, for many more years to come.”

Jim Ibbetson, Managing Director, Workhaus Projects, said:

“With an extensive skill set in-house along with support from trusted subcontractors, for specialist aspects of the fit-out, it will allow us to transform the Inverness Castle Experience and designers Mather & Co’s vision into reality, delivering a one-of-a-kind fit-out that captures the essence of this project’s uniqueness and creativity.”
