Buildings on Academy Street, Inverness

Formerly known as New Street, Academy Street takes its name from the old Inverness Royal Academy building erected in 1792. It remained in use as a school until 1895, when the academy moved to Midmills Road.

The building, which here houses an Irish theme pub, is on the corner of Academy Street and Rose Street. It was designed in 1893 by local Inverness architects Ross and Macbeth as the warehouses of the Rose Street Foundry.

The foundry was established in 1872. It was originally called 'The Northern Agricultural Implement and Foundry Company Limited'. As well as making agricultural implements, it worked on the Highland Railway and provided ironwork for many buildings designed by the architect Alexander Ross. The Rose Street Foundry later became known as A I Welders.
