Cabmen, Macrae & Dick, Inverness

Cabmen of Macrae & Dick, transport services firm. In 1878, Roderick Macrae of Beauly and William Dick of Redcastle became business partners in a firm that offered horses and horse drawn carriages for hire and also acted as a posting establishment.

With the arrival of the motor car, Macrae & Dick became interested not only in the hiring of cars but also in the servicing and sale of them. As this part of the business increased, the horse hiring and posting element declined. Today, the company is still one of the leading motor industry firms throughout the north of Scotland
