Photographer's Note

Another old photo shot on film camera 24 years ago. Scanned from negative. Cleaned & adjusted with PS CS3.

Inverness Castle sits on a low cliff overlooking the River Ness and the cathedral on the opposite bank. The castle was originally a late 11th century earth and timber enclosure fortress, founded by King Malcolm III Canmore. The castle was destroyed by King Robert the Bruce but was rebuilt in stone by George Gordon, Earl of Huntly in 1548. The castle was again destroyed after the garrison surrendered to the Jacobite army in 1746. A dramatic 19th century neo-Norman castle now stands on the site, built to house the County Hall.
