HM Prison Inverness, also known as Porterfield Prison, is located in the Crown area of Inverness, Scotland, and serves the courts of the Highlands and Islands. It covers all the courts in the Western Isles as well as courts from Fort William, Wick and Elgin. A small local prison, it deals with inmates serving up to 4 years, with female prisoners serving up to 2 years. Its capacity is 103 prisoners and as of 2016, on account of this capacity being insufficient, Scottish Prison Service intended to build a new prison near Milton of Leys.
In June 2016 after significant opposition from local residents (HAPPL Campaign) the Scottish Prison Service suspended the consultation on the Milton of Leys site to assess an alternative option.
