Palace Hotel, Inverness

The Palace Hotel was built on the site of Ness House, a mansion that was destroyed in 1870. The building was designed by Ross & MacBeth and opened in 1890. The hotel had a Scots Baronial entrance very similar to the entrance of Fyvie Castle.

The Palace Hotel was one of the first tourist hotels in Inverness, built to accommodate the increased number of visitors to the area after the opening of the railway.
