Flats at Bught Drive in Inverness

Flats at Bught Drive in Inverness, seen here in the 1950s. The tree-covered hill of Tomnahurich ('hill of the yew trees') can be seen in the background. The name 'Bught' is derived from the Old Scots word 'boucht' or 'bought', 'a bending, bay or sheep pen'.

Like many parts of Britain, Inverness experienced a housing shortage in the post-war years and many new houses and flats were built in the late 1940s and 1950s
