Architectural Audit of Inverness: 33-43 Castle Street, East Side

No. 33-37 Castle Street is a two storey house with corbie. The step gables has a skewputt dated 1744 with initials I.R., I.C. and M.A. No. 39-41 is a late 18th century semi-circular arched pend.

A gable is a triangular slope where the wall of a building meets the roof. Crow (or 'corbie' in Scots) step gables have an angular pattern, like stairs, and the ones on these buildings date to 1774. The buildings are now occupied by Barney's Convenience Store, J. Graham & Co, Castle Restaurant and Castle Gallery. A 'pend' is a Scottish term for an arch that is built under rooms and leads into a courtyard.
