Shakespeare doesn't say. But Macbeth, according to Holinshed, if I
recall correctly, was King for ten years, so he had plenty of time to
establish seats in a number of places.

Hi, he believes the prophesies.  And the castle is referred to as 'great
Dunsinane' which will 'laugh a siege to scorn.' Two reasons to make his
stand there.

As for Inverness, I have never seen it documented but have always
understood it was Lady Macbeth's family seat which Macbeth would have
acquired by marrying her.
