Inglis Street, Inverness

Most of the buildings in Inglis Street date from the 19th century. Businesses pictured here include R S McColl, newsagent; the Club Bar; D Watson, taxidermist; and Conn's Restaurant.

The street, named after Provost Inglis, used to be the crowded link between the town's meal market and the cattle market. Along with Academy Street and Eastgate, it was also the site of the town's annual Martinmas Market, held in November. This was more commonly called 'The Cheese Market', as locally made cheese and butter were sold at this fair.

Today, the street is pedestrianised.
