The Palace Hotel, Inverness

The Palace Hotel in Inverness is one of two hotels built on the site of Ness House, a mansion demolished in 1870. It was designed by the architects Ross & MacBeth and was opened in 1890. The building is in the baronial style and the entrance is similar to that of Fyvie Castle in Aberdeenshire.

The Palace Hotel was one of the first tourist hotels built in Inverness to accommodate the growing number of tourists brought to the area by the newly-opened railway.
