Castle Street, Inverness

This photograph shows cars and pedestrians at the lower end of Castle Street. Castle Street has previously been known as Overgait and Doomsdale, the current name coming into use after 1675. One of the original three streets in Inverness, excavations carried out during the 1980s found evidence of human habitation at its lower end, 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.
