Walkers Store Exterior

Walkers Store was on the corner of Inglis Street and Academy Street in Inverness. It sold tartan novelties, toys, fancy goods and leather goods.

Inglis Street, named after Provost William 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. Most of the buildings in Inglis Street date from the 19th century.
