The Highlands

Pool House  is due to open for house tours in April 2021.

Nestled on the seashore and alongside a river, Pool House is a fascinating, quirky and characterful Highland home. Move through 300 years of rich history and discover the dramatic events that have taken place within these walls and the many notable people that visited the house over the years. A courthouse in the 1700s; the setting for a marital battle that scandalised Victorian society; through to becoming a WW2 headquarters, there will be something to delight, engage and captivate in every room.

Spirit of the Highlands is a project that will create a must-see visitor attraction in Inverness, celebrating the Spirit of the Highlands, past, present and future. The creativity, well-being, culture, heritage, natural environment and language of this unique part of Scotland will all form part of the story told. The attraction will bring new and returning visitors to the area and inspire people to visit all part of the Highlands.

Spirit of the Highlands will see transformation of Inverness Castle buildings to become a gateway for Highland tourism, supporting economic growth throughout the Highland area and extending the benefits beyond the castle walls. It aims to raise awareness of the Highlands internationally, extend visitor stay and increase visitor spend in the area, whilst also providing opportunity to link historic, cultural and natural attractions across the Highland’s to everyone’s benefit.
