Highland Blindcraft, Ardconnel Street, Inverness

Highland BlindCraft, formerly Blindcraft Inverness, was established 140 years ago as the The Northern Counties Institute for the Blind. It was partly funded by a bequest from Donald Fraser, MD, of Hampstead, Middlesex. The money was 'to be applied by the Trustees for the benefit of the blind in the County of Inverness, and primarily for their education in industrial pursuits with the view of enabling them to earn their own livelihood.'

Today, the company still runs on the same concept, although they now include people with a variety of disabilities from all over the Highlands and Islands.
