Spirit of the Highlands – Inverness Castle

It has been a strange and sometimes difficult Covid year, but I have been working away at some very interesting writing projects which are slowly coming to fruition. This blog post is to share some work that I have been doing over the last wee while:

I am pleased to say that I am part of the Spirit of the Highlands project at Inverness Castle.

Inverness Castle was for many years the region’s Sheriff Court, but is being transformed into a visitor attraction. You can read more about the project, and see videos of the progress of the refurbishment, here: https://www.spiritofthehighlands.com/

For my part in the project, I am researching and writing about the history of Inverness Castle, and about one of the historical Highland stories shared through the ‘Spirit of the Highlands 100 Stories’ initiative:

Recently, I was able to go ‘behind the hoardings’ of the transformation on a Castle Hill Tour, to see how the work on the castle is progressing:

And I have been spending some time in Inverness Library reference room, researching my writing.

I will be posting more as the project progresses.

Spirit:360 is supported by Highland Place Partnership, by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland’s Place Partnership Programme, and is administered by High Life Highland, as part of the Spirit of the Highlands project.
