What is Spirit of the Highlands?

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 parts of the Highlands.

Spirit of the Highlands will see transformation of the 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 Highlands to everyone’s benefit. 

Everyone who lives, visits and works in the Highlands will have an opportunity to shape the story told within Inverness Castle through the creation of Spirit:Autobiography. Find out more about how you can contribute here.
