Castle Street, Inverness

A view of Castle Street in Inverness, taken from Castle Hill. From right to left, the buildings are occupied by the Northern Counties Institute, M. Livingstone (tobacconist), the Castle Cycle Depot and the Castle Hat Shop.

Castle Street has previously been known as Overgait and Doomsdale, the current name coming into use after 1675. Excavations carried out during the 1980s at the lower end of Castle Street, found evidence of human habitation as far back as 7000 BC. However, there is no evidence to suggest that this habitation has been continuous. Although much of the street was rebuilt in the 1930s, some of its 18th century houses still remain
