A plan to develop Inverness Castle's North Tower as a tourist attraction has secured approval from Historic Scotland.

Highland Council had to submit an application for listed building consent as part of the project to create viewing platforms in the tower.

The local authority hopes to open the tower to the public next year.

The rest of the 19th Century building would continue to be used as a sheriff court.
